When we are confirmed, we receive the Holy Spirit, through the anointing with oil and the laying on of hands by the bishop or a priest appointed by him. Those already baptized are strengthened by the Holy Spirit in order that they may steadfastly profess the faith and faithfully live up to their profession.


Children who were baptized as infants prepare for this sacrament in the eighth grade. The child being confirmed must be attending Sunday Mass as part of the preparation process in order to be confirmed. Eighth graders preparing for this sacrament are asked to write a letter to the Bishop requesting the sacrament of Confirmation and to complete a shield that depicts some of their family background origin or outstanding qualities and virtues that pertain to them as Catholics.

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is a process through which interested adults become members of the Catholic Church.  If you are un-baptized or baptized in another faith and would like to learn more about the teachings of the Catholic Church, please call the Parish Office to find out more about the RCIA process.
