The reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace.  The baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church and enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit.  It is not the end of faith formation but is an important step on the journey of faith.  The preparation for Confirmation and receiving of the sacrament helps develop a better understanding of the Catholic faith and a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.

St. Mary Parish provides a one year preparation program for youth.  Confirmation occurs in the 7th grade, however, it is available to all students, 7th grade and beyond.  Youth wishing to receive the sacrament must be attending weekend Masses at our parish and participate in the parish Confirmation preparation program.
