Dear Future Candidate,
You may feel enthusiastic and eager to be involved in the Confirmation Prep process, or you may feel unsure about your role or you may even be doing this because of Mom and Dad. Whatever your personal situation, be encouraged by the fact that God loves you without limit. This limitless love—which is the core of our Catholic Faith—is very good news indeed. May the Holy Spirit inspire, encourage you and guide you into the fullness of the Faith.

Father John, The Formation Team and Confirmation Prep Team, your family and the entire Parish are here to support you in this journey every step of the way. Thank you for allowing us to walk with you and know that we are praying for you during this walk in faith.

What is Confirmation?
This is a JOURNEY and not a class. This is for the entire FAMILY and not just for your teen attending the Sacramental Preparation. Confirmation is not the end or graduation from your teen or family's FAITH FORMATION and in the true sense, Confirmation is the beginning moment for your teenager to being a MATURE Catholic man or woman. We thank you, for allowing us to be on this JOURNEY with your teen and family. Please see below on how your teen and family can begin the JOURNEY to Confirmation.
"The Sacrament of Confirmation, along with Baptism and Eucharist, completes the process of Christian Initiation. Confirmation is the completion of the baptismal grace. For by the Sacraments of Confirmation, the baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed."
