Teen Confirmation

Preparation for Confirmation is a spiritual, family experience. Through the preparation process, participants will grow in their sense of community, deepen their understanding of the sacramental rites, and express their understanding in a faithful response.

Who Can Register?

Please remember two years of consecutive Catholic Education, in Religious Education or from a Catholic School, are required prior to Confirmation.

If your child is in 7th or 8th grade (and does not attend a Catholic school), please make sure to get registered into Parish Faith Formation ASAP for the 2016-2017 school year.  Religious Education Registration Form – 2016-2017

Children in 8th grade and above are eligible to register for the Sacrament of Confirmation.

Please remember, 8th grade parents must attend one of the September meetings and complete the packet in order to register a child for Confirmation Preparation. Registration for 8th grade Religious Education classes does not automatically register your child for Confirmation.
