Confirmation, together with Baptism and Eucharist, form the Sacraments of Initiation that are intimately connected. Through the sacrament of Baptism we are born again through water and the Holy Spirit into the family of God. Through the sacrament of Confirmation, we are sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit and we are strengthened to go out and serve the Body of Christ. Eucharist completes the Sacraments of Initiation and incorporates us completely into the Catholic Church. We are nourished by the Body and Blood of Christ so we can go out and nourish others in the world.
People who are baptized or brought into full communion at the Easter Vigil or at other times of the year are confirmed by the pastor. See ADULTS RCIA.

Confirmation, together with Baptism and Eucharist, form the Sacraments of Initiation which are intimately connected. In the Sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized person is “sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit” and is strengthened for service to the Body of Christ. Without reception of this sacrament, one is not a full member of the Church.
Currently, the Sacrament of Confirmation for our teens is celebrated in the Fall of 10th grade with preparation beginning in 9th grade. Some adults who have not received this Sacrament often complete their initiation into the Church with our teens. Common questions & answers about our youth ministry program can be found: Here
