Welcome! We are excited you are interested in becoming a candidate for the Sacrament of Confirmation!

As prescribed by the Diocese, anyone wishing to begin preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation must complete 1 full year ofCatechesis/religious education (whether through Catholic School or the Parish) prior to beginning actual sacrament preparation.  We therefore use the following designations:

Confirmation Year 1 (normally 8th grade) = The full year of Catechesis required to begin actual Confirmation Preparation

Confirmation Year 2 (normally 9th grade) = The year of actual Confirmation Preparation; with Confirmation taking place in January (normally) of Confirmation Year 2


To begin preparation the Candidate must:

1. Have received the Sacraments of Baptist, First Communion and Reconciliation.

 *Candidates who were not baptized at St. Joseph's Church, will need to provide a Baptismal Certificate

2. Be 14 years old at the time of Confirmation which will take during 9th grade.

3. Personally desire to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation and be willing to participate in the preparation process.
