The Sacrament of Confirmation

When we are baptized, we are adopted by the Father and given the opportunity to participate in Christ’s role as Priest, Prophet, & King. Through Confirmation, God completes our Baptismal grace and deepens our call to live this three-fold mission. This is not a rite of passage or graduation from religious education, it is a continuation of the "faith journey" we are all on. It is a sacrament of mission and power, giving Christians the strength and grace to live out the mission of Jesus Christ and His Church.

 

The sacrament is celebrated in October the following year. Teens can register for Confirmation Preparation if they have met the following requirements:

  • Have been baptized

  • Will reach the age of 15 by September 1st in the year prior receiving Confirmation

  • Will participate in Youth Discipleship Small Groups (both Catholic and Public School Youth) during the school year

  • Have attended a Catholic School or Youth Discipleship Small Group for the year prior to and including the year of preparation
