The Sacrament of Confirmation

"I wish not merely to be called Christian, but also to be Christian."

St. Ignatius of Antioch

The Sacrament of Confirmation is the third of the Sacraments of Initiation, along with the Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion. Through Confirmation, Catholics are especially strengthened by the Holy Spirit to do God's will in building His kingdom on earth.

Confirmation typically takes place in the spring. Here at All Saints Parish, we offer Confirmation Prep programs for teens as well as for adults. One must meet the eligibility requirements as outlined below in order to be accepted into the confirmation prep program.
