Most of us were baptized as an infant and have stories or pictures that have been shared with us but no memory of celebrating the sacrament ourselves.Baptism is the first sacrament of initiation that we celebrate, usually as an infant with our parents and godparents committing to raise us in the Catholic faith.Confirmation is also a sacrament of initiation that is celebrated to affirm our baptism.Confirmation provides us the opportunity to renew our baptismal promises and choose for ourselves to grow in our faith through participation in the Catholic Church.
8th grade Students: Confirmation is a sacrament that a young person can prepare to receive during their 8th grade year. Students active in one of our programs of religion in 7th and 8th grades are eligible to prepare for the sacrament of confirmation.
