Confirmation

Confirmation
Confirmation perfects Baptismal grace; it is the sacrament which gives the Holy Spirit in order to root us more deeply in the divine filiation, incorporate us more firmly into Christ, strengthen our bond with the Church, associate us more closely with her mission, and help us bear witness to the Christian faith in words accompanied by deeds. (CCC 1316)
 
For on him the Father, God, has set his seal. (John 6:27)

 

Adult Confirmation

Did you know Confirmation is required in order to serve as a Godparent or sponsor? Or that you are to be confirmed prior to marriage in the Church? Baptized Catholics, 18 years and older, generally prepare for this sacrament through a series of classes offered each year. If you are baptized but have not been confirmed, it is NEVER too late to prepare. The ages in our classes range from 18 to 100. Adult Confirmation classes are held as part of our RCIA program.

Teen Confirmation

The age to receive the sacrament of Confirmation at our parish and around the diocese has shifted to 7th grade. For this academic year, our Confirmation Ministry welcomes all students in 7th through 12th grade who discern they are ready to prepare to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. Classes begin in the new year culminating in the celebration of Confirmation in May.

In Early 2020, Archbishop Sartain affirmed that the age of reception for the Sacrament of Confirmation is to be lowered to the 7th grade (approximately 13 years of age) for all parishes in the Archdiocese by the year 2023.
