God bless you for considering the beautiful Sacrament of Confirmation! Confirmation establishes NOT an end or "graduation" of your faith life, but a BEGINNING of a life of full participation and responsibility in the Church. As one of the Sacraments, it is an amazing sign of God's love and presence in our lives. You will be receiving the fullness of the Holy Spirit that was given to you at Baptism. This same Spirit filled the Apostles with the zeal and courage needed by all who are public witnesses to Christ's selfless and perfect love.
This Confirmation program is meant for teens in the 9th-12th grades. Classes meet on average twice per month on Sundays from 6:00pm/6:30pm until 8:30pm (please see Confirmation calendar for specifics). Registration for all Faith Formation will begin Sept. 5, 2015. Confirmation Information meeting will be on Sunday, September 20th at 11:45am. (An alternate meeting has been added if you cannot make the meeting on 9/20. This meeting will take place on Sunday, September 27th at 11:45am) Registration and payment can be turned it at this meeting, if not previously turned in. First class is on Oct. 11, 2015.
Confirmation Information Packets will be available during the Faith Formation registration period in the narthex. They will also be available in the parish office.
Adult Confirmation takes place in late May. We start adult Confirmation classes just after Easter each year.
Why be confirmed as an adult? If you have missed Confirmation as a young person, you are missing out on one of the initiation sacraments. As with all the sacraments, graces flow to those who receive the sacrament in an open and accepting manner.
From a practical point of view, to be a God parent or sponsor, you need to be a practicing, confirmed Catholic.
