Just as bodies and minds grow, Catholics believe that the soul also needs to grow in the life of grace. The sacrament of Confirmation builds on the sacraments of Baptism, Penance, and Holy Communion, completing the process of initiation into the Catholic community.
Youth who are entering 11th grade and have received the sacraments of Baptism, First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion participate in a Confirmation Class arranged through the Faith Formation Program. Please read the Confirmation Guidelines of Parents and Youth Link for an overview and directions.
Persons over 18 who have not received any or some of their sacraments and have not yet been Confirmed can attend a class in the RCIA program (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults). Information about how you can register for RCIA can be found here or you call Deacon Bob Ball with further questions or concerns.
