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.

Confirmation is April 24, 2024 at 7:00pm

There have been some changes to the Confirmation time line. One major change, however, is that Confirmation is in the process of being phased to 9th grade. This year, students entering 10th and 11th grades will make their Confirmation. They will need to participate in faith formation preparation classes. This includes those students who attend Catholic high school. Just as a reminder, the Diocese requires two years of preparation prior to entering the Confirmation year. The only exception is this year’s 10th grade class because of this recent change.
