Confirmation Preparation

Confirmation is a two-year preparation process to support young people in making a mature commitment to their faith and to God.


 General Information

Candidates for confirmation will be at least 16 years old when they are confirmed.

Candidates are expected to have mentors to usher them through the process. Candidates and mentors will come to monthly meetings, September through May. There is outside reading and meetings with the mentor that are also expected. The Sacrament of Confirmation is usually received shortly after Easter at the Bishop's discretion. Candidates are expected to attend Services at least twice a month and participate in parish life. They are expected to attend all Triduum services.  They are also expected to participate in at least one event such as a lock in, retreat or service opportunity.

We hold our preparation meetings in conjunction with several other parishes. That means we have a wider base of expertise to draw on for formation and that we visit other parishes as a part of the preparation.

Confirmation date for 2020 is May 16. The location for is not yet announced. Please check back for updates.
