Lifelong Formation

Youth Confirmation

"For by the Sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the church and are enriched with a 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.” (LG 11; cf. Rite of Confirmation, Introduction 2)

Youth are confirmed at their parish through their religious education program, typically between seventh grade and sophomore year of high school. Policies and resources are listed below. Please contact your parish catechetical leader for more specific information about your parish’s program.
