Confirmation

CONFIRMATION

The Confirmation preparation process guides the candidate into the experience of the fullness of the Holy Spirit through the completion of the Sacraments of Initiation. Confirmation completes the grace of Baptism by the outpouring of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, which seals one’s baptism and unites the believer intimately to Christ and equips one to live as a disciple.

The process is a two-year period of formation. The earliest a candidate can prepare for the sacrament of Confirmation is in grade 9 with the celebration of the sacrament at the end of grade 10.  It consists of class sessions (approximately 12/year), 24 hours of service in total for two years and a retreat just prior to the celebration of the sacrament.

Confirmation sessions are on Monday evenings at St. John the Evangelist Church for the entire collaborative.

Confirmation for adults is available for those 18 and older who have received the Sacrament of the Eucharist and catechesis in the Catholic faith through eighth grade.
