To receive this sacrament, individuals must be baptized Catholics.
About gr. 6 or age 12
Children must be baptized prior to celebrating other sacraments. If baptism is needed, please contact the parish office. It is recommended that children celebrate the sacraments of First Reconciliation (Confession) and First Eucharist (Holy Communion) prior to celebrating the sacrament of Confirmation.
The Archdiocese encourages parishes to run sacrament preparation programs remotely during this pandemic time. Holy Family Parish will make the content available to families by monthly emails in 2020-2021 instead of asking them to come to the church for preparation evenings.
The Church recognizes parents as the first and best teachers of the faith for their children (Second Vatican Council, Gravissum Educationis, 28 October 1965; Saint John Paul II, Letter to Families, 2 February 1994). The parish will support you with excellent resources and guidance.
By October 31st, complete the registration form for the sacrament of Confirmation, bring it to the church and get the at-home workbook.
-The registration form is found in the link below.
-Please attach a copy of your child’s BAPTISM certificate unless they were baptized at Holy Family Parish.

You will receive an email by November 6th with instructions on what to complete and submit by November 30th, and so on each month until May, 2021.
The Sacrament of Confirmation will be celebrated in our parish in 2021 sometime in May or later. Details will be provided as they become available.
Looking forward to a different but rich and rewarding experience of sacrament preparation this year!
