Confirmation is the sacrament that fully initiates a Catholic into the life of the Church. Sponsors for Confirmation must themselves be confirmed, and if married, validly so. Confirmation classes have been phased to 9th grade. Candidates will need to participate in our Faith Formation classes, which also includes students that attend a Catholic high school. The Diocese requires two years of preparation prior to entering the Confirmation year.

The date for Confirmation 2025 will be announced as soon as possible.

For more information, please contact Roxanne Kleckner, Faith Formation Assistant at (814) 864-0622 ext. 353 or
