Confirmation

Parents are the primary teachers of the faith (CCC #1653) and therefore are responsible for preparing their children for the Sacraments. The Church understands that this task can be very challenging and helps by providing faith formation through the parish, especially for sacrament preparation. Those attending Jordan Catholic School receive preparation during their normal religion class. Those attending home, private, or public schools receive preparation through the Children's Religious Education Program (CCD) offered on Wednesdays, 5:00-6:30pm.

Requirements to Receive Confirmation:

  • Eighth Grade or older
  • Baptized Catholic (or Received into the Catholic Church) and have received First Communion
  • Enrolled in two consecutive years of religious instruction, whether at a Catholic parochial school, CCD, or an approved homeschool curriculum.
  • Completion of Confirmation Service Hours
  • Attendance at Confirmation Retreat in January

Rite of Confirmation - Saturday, May 20th

The Rite of Confirmation will take place on Saturday, May 20th.

Please pray for our young people who are asking for the help and grace of the Holy Spirit to bear witness, to bear testimony to Jesus Christ as St. John has told us in the Gospel.

 

"The essential effect of the sacrament of Confirmation is to bring to perfection the gift of the Holy Spirit received in Baptism, so that the person who receives it is able to witness to Christ in speech and with his life."  Pope St. John Paul II
