It is evident from its celebration that the effect of the sacrament of Confirmation is the special outpouring of the Holy Spirit as once granted to the apostles on the day of Pentecost.
— Catechism of the Catholic Church, §1302
Confirmation usually takes place in the 7th grade. A candidate for Confirmation must have had religious instruction the previous year, with no more than three absences in the year. A candidate is also required to attend Mass each Sunday and Holy Day of Obligation. Contact the Parish Office to learn more.
Adults who have been Baptized and wish to be Confirmed should contact the Parish Office to learn more. Adults who have never been Baptized should contact the Parish Office to learn about the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) which includes the preparation for and celebration of the Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist.
