Confirmation is a sacrament of mature Christian commitment and a deepening of baptismal gifts of the Holy Spirit. Like Baptism and Eucharist, it is a Sacrament of Initiation and of faith in God’s fidelity to us. Our regular parish program is a two-year process that may begin with entrance to 8th grade.

Since the program starts in October, we will not be able to facilitate any meetings in the fall.
Prayerfully discerning celebrating Confirmation?
Thinking about completing your Christian Initiation?
At St. Francis, we follow the Diocese’s guidelines that Confirmation is a two year faith development journey consisting of the Remote (year one) and Proximate (year two) year. During those two years, the youth is expected to participate in Faith Formation (fulfilled by Cross Train/Road, home school, or attendance at a Catholic school), complete the Confirmation Preparation sessions, attend retreats, as well as engage in service ministry. The goal is for the youth to appreciate and celebrate their faith through their involvement in the life and mission of our parish community. The Sacrament of Confirmation may be celebrated any time after the fall of sophomore year in high school.
If your family is planning on participating in the 2018-20 Confirmation preparation process, you MUST attend an Information/Registration session and register at one of these meetings!
