Confirmation

Our community will begin a new year of preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation for teens and high-school students in September 2018.  By receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation those who have been baptized will continue their growth in faith and further their initiation into the one, holy, catholic, apostolic Church. Confirmadi receive the Holy Spirit, which Jesus sent to his first disciples at Pentecost. The Holy Spirit forms the faithful to me more like Jesus and to build up His kingdom in the world. Confirmandi will be marked with the Sacred Chrism as a seal which cannot be removed as a sign of their faith and love for God.  Teens who walk through this preparation process will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation at 12:00 Mass on Sunday, May 5, 2019 with Bishop Donald Hanchon.

Teens who want to prepare for Confirmation are to be/have:

•             Reached at least the 8th grade level in faith formation or religion class;

•             Be baptized Roman Catholic;

•             A current, registered member of St. Regis Catholic Parish;

•             Attended faith formation classes or a Catholic School from 1st through 8th grade (If some of these years were skipped, we will deal with it on an individual basis);

•             Enrolled for the current 2018-19 academic year in a Catholic school or Parish Faith Formation program.
