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.

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 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.
Confirmation preparation is a two year long journey, and teens can start as early as the fall of 8th grade.
