The Sacrament of Confirmation is the fulfillment of the Christian Initiation process begun in Baptism and nourished through the Eucharist. Preparation for the sacrament is a two-year period of time. In our PREP program, students begin preparation to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in seventh grade and the sacrament is received in eighth grade. If a child has not started their preparation for the sacrament in seventh grade but wishes to be Confirmed you may come to the parish office to discuss options. If you have graduated High School and wish to be confirmed please contact Deacon Nick for more information on RCIA.
STUDENTS PREPARING TO RECEIVE THE SACRAMENT OF CONFIRMATION IN THE 2023-2024 SCHOOL YEAR MUST ATTEND THE FOLLOWING SACRAMENTAL PREP DATES:
Retreat: To be announced. Usually, the retreat is on a weekday evening a few weeks prior to Confirmation. Once the Confirmation date is given to me by the Bishop’s office, I will schedule the retreat.
Rehearsal: Usually rehearsal is the night before Confirmation at 6pm in Assumption Church.
Confirmation: Usually we are given the date by the Bishop’s office sometime in January.
Adult preparation for Confirmation is normally done through the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) Program.
