To receive this sacrament, individuals must be baptized Catholics. 

Confirmation Prep

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 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.

Please complete the registration form for the sacrament of Confirmation in the link below.  

*  Please attach a copy of your child’s BAPTISM certificate unless they were baptized at Holy Family Parish.     

Dates for First Reconciliation/First Eucharist and Confirmation Sacramental Preparation lessons - all classes will be at Holy Family Parish 

Based on the feedback from families at the parent sessions, families have two sessions from which to choose for each lesson. It is not necessary to register for the sessions in advance.

Confirmation session dates:

Lesson #1 - Work to complete from the first session in November for the January session. 

  • Select a Confirmation Sponsor, if you have not selected one yet
  • Complete the Confirmation Project; three parts
  • Read pages eight and nine and complete the two questions under “My Thoughts” on page 10 in the workbook. 
  • Key Ring Discussion: There are six “Talk Tags” at the back of the workbook. Each “Talk Tag” has two sides. Find the “Talk Tag” that has the question found on page 10: How does knowing that Jesus died to save us change the way you live or feel about life? This question should be discussed between parents and candidates (children). The back of the “Talk Tag” asks the candidates (children) to contact their godparents and “Thank them for being there at baptism.” There may be unique circumstances that make this impossible; if this is the case, omit this part. Once the two tasks are complete, detach the “Talk Tag” and attach it to the key ring that came with the workbook.  

  • Read and discuss page 13 in the workbook.
