Any baptized person who is a Junior or Senior in High School may be Confirmed. There is a formation process that culminates with the mass of Confirmation, celebrated with a bishop of our Archdiocese. Holy Rosary prepares candidates for Confirmation every year. There is an orientation meeting in the fall, and the preparation program begin at the start of the new year with a weekend retreat. If you would like to be confirmed, go to our High School Confirmation Registration page.
Growth is vital to human life; the body and mind must grow to stay alive. Catholics believe that the soul also needs to grow to maturity in the life of grace, just as the human body must grow through childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. Catholics believe the Sacrament of Confirmation is the supernatural equivalent of the growth process on the natural level. It builds on what was begun in Baptism and what was nourished in Holy Eucharist. It completes the process of initiation into the Christian community, and it matures the soul for the work ahead.
If you are an adult who has not yet been Confirmed, this preparation series is for you!

Profession of Faith with or without Confirmation: Those children already baptized in other Christian communities will make a profession of faith into the Catholic Church and will receive the sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation in the Rite of Reception into Full Communion with the Catholic Church. In addition to the Sacramental Preparation received in either Sunday Faith Formation classes and/or through Catholic School, a one hour class is required for children to prepare for a Profession of Faith.
