Youth Confirmation
The desire of the baptized to continue
to grow and develop as Christians finds expression in Confirmation. When we receive the Sacrament of Confirmation,
we renew our baptismal promises and receive in a new way the gift of the Holy Spirit. Anointed at Confirmation, we are further strengthened to live as disciples
of Jesus Christ.

Confirmation: Strengthened by the Spirit, Called to Action.

The preparation of youth for the sacrament of Confirmation is a two year process for high school youth who have been baptized and received First Communion in the Catholic Church, and desire Confirmation. Our youth Confirmation preparation process seeks to inspire and equip young people for lifelong discipleship and commitment to their Catholic faith, strengthened by the Holy Spirit and the Grace of the sacrament.
