Confirmation

Confirmation is a Catholic sacrament of mature Christian commitment and a deepening of baptismal gifts. Like Baptism and Eucharist, it is a Sacrament of Initiation for Catholics and a Sacrament of faith in God’s fidelity to us. Confirmation takes place in the child’s 8th grade year.

Philosophy of Confirmation Preparation for Youth 
The goal of the Confirmation Preparation Program is to help every candidate enhance and deepen their faith through an experiential learning process with a mentor (their Confirmation Sponsor). With monthly book discussions with their mentor, the candidate will have the opportunity to discern what gifts he/she can bring to the adult Christian community. It is our belief that the preparation for Confirmation includes community building, service outreach, and spiritual growth through prayer and a retreat.
