The Sacrament of Confirmation

rc27rpes35jc0a10e699eerz6dl.pngThe goal of the St. Charles Borromeo Confirmation program is to invite teens to encounter Christ and develop a relationship with Him. To do so, the Confirmation program strives to foster transformative faith, community, and a greater understanding of each student’s vocation. Participation in Youth Ministry, attendance at Sunday Mass, and activities with the wider parish is part of our call to community and visible expression of our Catholic faith. 

Adults: Those who have been baptized in the Catholic Church but have not received the sacrament of Confirmation and desire to do so may call the Parish Office to schedule a one-on-one meeting to determine the appropriate preparation. 

Confirmation preparation for adults may range from a short series of meetings leading to the annual Confirmation Rite celebrated with the Bishop or participation in the parish Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). 

Sponsor Involvement: All youth and adult candidates are required to have a sponsor chosen prior to the start of preparation.  All sponsors must be a confirmed Catholic adult and may not be a parent of the candidate. The sponsor is required to attend Confirmation sessions.
