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 for 2023 is March 27, 2023
There have been changes to the Confirmation process for this upcoming year. One major change 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.

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.
