Getting Confirmed...


  • Youth Candidates are confirmed during the spring of eighth grade after completing our Confirmation Preparation Program.
  • High School teens are confirmed once they have completed the RCIT class.
  • Candidates for Confirmation must have one sponsor who is at least 16 years of age and be a practicing Catholic. They must provide certification from their home parish that they are members in good standing.
  • All youth preparing for Confirmation must attend a parish confirmation retreat.
  • All youth preparing for Confirmation must be interviewed by a parish priest.




  • Adults baptized within the Catholic Church, seeking to complete their sacraments of Initiation through the reception of Confirmation must receive the sacrament from a Catholic Bishop unless a serious reason prevents this. Bishop Loverde Confirms adults during Pentecost.
  • To be considered for adult Confirmation one must be practicing their faith by regular attendance at Mass.
  • Please contact the Director of Religious Educationas soon as possible to ensure that you may be included in the adult Confirmation at Pentecost.
