The sacraments of Christian initiation – Baptism, Confirmation, and the Eucharist – lay the foundations of every Christian life (Catechism 1212). The Sacrament of Confirmation assists someone as they mature in their faith; it enriches the baptized with the Holy Spirit. When we are confirmed, we show that we belong to God and know that we are called to be missionary witnesses of Jesus Christ. Confirmation is conferred through anointing with chrism and the laying on of hands.
Confirmation usually takes place through our Christian Formation program for those that have completed at least 1 year of a High School Christian Formation Program or Catholic High School and at least 16 years of age and a junior in high school.
