What is Confirmation?
The sacrament of Confirmation impresses a character and by it the baptized, continuing on the path of Christian initiation, are enriched by the gift of the Holy Spirit and bound more perfectly to the Church; it strengthens them and obliges them more firmly to the witness to Christ by word and deed and to spread and defend the faith (CIC can.879).
At All Saints Catholic Church, the sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated when youth are in their Sophomore year of high school and have completed the program of catechetical preparation. If a student has not attended 9th grade in one of our Catholic high schools or our PSR program, they will need to attend 9th grade PSR classes. It is a requirement for preparing for Confirmation.
Any adult aged 18 years or older, who has not received the sacrament of Confirmation can do so when the Bishop visits All Saints Catholic Church (watch the Parish Bulletin for more details). Candidates will complete preparation sessions.
Baptismal Certificates are required for everyone (youth & adults) receiving the sacrament of Confirmation.
