Before Jesus ascended to the Father, He promised to send us His Spirit (John 16:7-8). We receive this Spirit first at Baptism, and that baptismal gift is deepened and strengthened when we receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. This sacrament, instituted by Christ, effects the “special outpouring of the Holy Spirit as once granted to the apostles on the day of Pentecost” (CCC1302). 
  • Sessions to prepare adults (18 and over) for the Sacrament of Confirmation are held each year beginning in Lent. Please contact Jackie Ross at for more information.
  • Children enrolled in our Faith Formation, our Religious Instruction program or Saint Mary School, typically receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in Eighth Grade.
