Baptized Juniors and Seniors in High School are invited to be Confirmed. Please register with the Parish for Confirmation Preparation via the parish webpage. The High School Confirmation Program includes a formation process that culminates with the Mass of Confirmation, celebrated with a bishop of our Archdiocese in February 2017. In addition to registration please plan on attending the orientation meeting in the fall. Preparation will begin in the fall and goes into the winter.

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!
