Sacrament of Confirmation

"Jesus said to them again, 'Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.' And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, 'Receive the Holy Spirit...'"

- John 20:21-22

Receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation

Normally, the Sacrament of Confirmation is received in 8th grade, which is true for all Catholics in the Diocese of Harrisburg.  At our parish, there is a very engaging and inspiring two-year program that is required before receiving the sacrament.  This requirement includes both the 7th and 8th grade year of our religious education program.

     

  • Please contact our Religious Education Office to sign up for this program (see below), and we certainly also encourage students to be involved in Religious Education (Pre-K - 12th grade) and REVIVE Youth Ministry (7th - 12th grade) as much as possible to continue growing in their faith.

Please contact the Parish Office to register if you are new to the parish 

For all students looking to sign up for the Religious Education Program (as well as those looking to learn more about becoming Catholic or receiving all your Sacraments), visit:
