 Sacrament of Confirmation


Confirmation is the Sacrament of mature Christian commitment and a deepening of baptismal gifts.

It's one of the three Sacraments of Initiation for Catholics and most often associated with the gifts of the Holy Spirit.  


Confirmation preparation is a two year process beginning in 9th grade.


Parents are the key in their adolescent's Sacrament preparation and Faith Formation.

We encourage and support families to attend Mass on a regular basis.

Everything we do as Catholics flows from the Mass and back to it!


 Over two years, candidates will complete:
