In the Sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized person is "sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit" and is strengthened for service to the Body of Christ. Confirmation deepens our baptismal life that calls us to be missionary witnesses of Jesus Christ in our families, neighborhoods, society, and the world.  . . .  We receive the message of faith in a deeper and more intensive manner with great emphasis given to the person of Jesus Christ, who asked the Father to give the Holy Spirit to the Church for building up the community in loving service.

Preparation for Confirmation is conducted through Faith Formation.  Typically preparation for Confirmation begins in seventh grade with Pre-Confirmation. After completing the year of Pre-Confirmation the young person will move to the Confirmation program.  At the end of the second year of instruction, the candidate will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. In conjunction with two years of required Faith Formation classes, students will also be expected to complete service hours and participate in a ministry. 



For adults, who wish to receive Confirmation, please see our RCIA and Adult Formation page or contact Maria Falcon in the Faith Formation Office.
