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. To be sealed with the Spirit is to experience an awakening to God in one’s life. It is to learn the spiritual path Jesus teaches in the Gospel. It is to take seriously the challenge to love God, neighbor, and oneself.
Youth (age 13 usually) preparing for Confirmation must be in 8th Grade Faith Formation classes. There will also be a Q/A with L.J. Milone, Director of Faith Formation, and an afternoon retreat in May.
Youth seeking Confirmation should be registered for Children’s Faith Formation.
Adults preparing for Confirmation must attend six (6) classes on Sundays, 1:30 – 2:30pm via Zoom
