The sacrament of Confirmation is usually celebrated by 8th graders in the winter months of February or March, and the preparation process includes many components: catechesis, service, prayer, retreat, and sponsor night. The first two sacraments of initiation (Baptism and First Holy Communion) must have been received before Confirmation. The process is as follows:

~Young people who do not attend the parish school or family formation program and wish to complete their sacraments of initiation by receiving should contact Alec McGuire at the Parish Office.

~Confirmation preparation begins in the classrooms when school resumes in August/September at the beginning of a student’s 8th grade year.
