Confirmation deepens our baptismal life that calls us to be missionary witnesses of Jesus Christ in our families, neighborhoods, society, and the world.

“We receive the message of faith in a deeper and more intensive manner with great emphasis given to the person of Jesus Christ, who asked the Father to give the Holy Spirit to the Church for building up the community in loving service.” – United States Catholic Catechism for Adults

For more information on the Sacraments, please visit the USCCB website.

We offer the Sacrament of Confirmation to our students in the 8th grade after two consecutive years of faith formation in our RE program, as required by the Archdiocese of Chicago.

If a student goes through our K-8th RE program, they will have all of the Sacraments of Christian Initiation by the time they graduate from 8th grade.

About Confirmation (and Preparation)

“The fruit of Silence is prayer. The fruit of Prayer is faith. The fruit of Faith is love. The fruit of Love is service. The fruit of Service is peace.” Mother Teresa

“Evangelization precedes catechesis.” – Matthew Kelly

The Church always requires individuals have the proper formation prior to the celebration of a Sacrament. Even at Baptism the parents are required to take classes before a Priest or Deacon Baptize a child. The Archdiocese requires two years of formation (preparation) prior to a child receiving the Sacrament. We want our students to grow spiritually, increase in knowledge, and serve others willingly.

Confirmation is the third and final Sacrament of Christian Initiation. During the preparation process students make a choice to be a Christian Disciple. Parents, and families play the most important role in a child’s faith formation. We (teachers, catechists, DRE, Pastor) can only assist and give direction to the students. The final decision to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation is up to your child.

Jr. High Confirmation Preparation
Confirmation Preparation Process – A Two Year Process

There are several parts to the formation process. We ask that your child fully participate in the process. Students will need to attend and participate in Sunday Mass each week. Students will need to pass religion class in both years. Students will have written assignments (mostly due in class). Students will have service requirements in both years. Students will also need to attend a few retreats and short presentations over the two years. There are also, a few required items for the parents and sponsors that we will cover in another section.

Year One of Confirmation Formation

In year one we hope our students will make a choice for Jesus and the Catholic Faith (Evangelization Step). Parents, and families play the most important role in a child’s faith formation. We will have special classes the first year on Faith, Prayer and Jesus. Students will attend their first Confirmation Retreat. Students will be required to do some service during year one. Each student will be interviewed at the end of the first year. Students will write research papers on several Saints during year one.

Year Two of Confirmation Formation

In year two students will continue to study and service becomes a more important part of the program. As part of the second-year students demonstrate a willingness to live for others. They are called to show the community and the world that they are prepared to be a Christian disciple. Students will be asked to write two papers and make a poster prior to Confirmation.

High School Confirmation Preparation

We have a preparation program for High School Students that wish to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. Families with high school students seeking to complete the Sacrament of Confirmation will work on an individual basis with a facilitator.
