Confirmation Preparation Classes

Building a community to welcome the Holy Spirit

The celebration of Confirmation draws us more deeply into God’s power and love that lives within each of us and the Church. Having first experienced the Spirit of God through Baptism, we are drawn into a deeper, more intimate relationship with God the Father through a continuing unfolding of the gifts of the Spirit which gives us strength to boldly witness for Christ.

Who can receive Confirmation?

Each baptized Catholic can and should receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.

The candidates may request the Sacrament if they: 

  1. Are baptized and able to renew baptismal promises.
  2. Are open to receiving the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
  3. Have received their First Communion, are participating in the Sunday Mass and in the sacramental life of the Church. (Adults and adolescents who have not received First Communion will be catechized through the RCIA process with age appropriate catechesis.)
  4. Have reached 15 years of age.
  5. Are willing to commit to active involvement in the parish Confirmation preparation process.
  6. Are willing to continue to grow in faith following Confirmation and throughout their lifetime.

When the Nazi guards selected 10 people to be starved to death in punishment, Kolbe volunteered to die in place of a stranger. He was later canonised as a martyr.
