Confirmation is acceptance of the Holy Spirit and a renewing of your Baptismal vows since you reached the age of reason. It is the sacrament that roots Catholics more firmly to Jesus Christ, strengthens their ties to the church, and helps them stand firm in their faith when facing life’s challenges and while serving others.
Confirmation completes the “Sacraments of Christian Initiation” with Baptism and Eucharist.
The prerequisites for confirmation candidates are:
• already baptized
• received the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist
• must be in 9th grade and above
• participate in both Youth Ministry and a separate process for Confirmation
• Been enrolled and attend a minimum of two years of Religious Education
• Complete 40 service hours
• Participate in a retreat experience
