Sacrament Preparation: Sacrament Preparation is a two-year process for both Communion and Confirmation. Class attendance is mandatory. If there is an unexpected absence, the parent must notify the office. If more than a few classes are missed, you will have to meet with Glory Hartdegen, our director. If a quarter of the classes are missed, the child will need to retake that year of preparation. Families are expected to attend Mass each week. Parents should be prepared to assist in the catechesis of their children for the sacraments, as they are their children’s main catechists for life. Diocesan and Parish Guidelines require parents to be prepared to assist in the catechesis of their children for the sacraments. There will be mandatory Parent Meetings, Family Events, Masses, Retreats, and similar events throughout the year.
Reconciliation and Eucharist: Preparation TRADITIONALLY begins in First Grade with the children receiving their Sacraments during the second year. IF your child is older, their first full year of preparation will be done through enrollment and attendance in their School Grade-level sessions.
TRADITIONALLY youth can begin preparing for Confirmation in ninth grade. They can also begin their Sophomore or Junior year of High School. Please note that Sacrament Preparation for Confirmation is a two-year process. Therefore, starting the program as a Senior is not an option. This program completes the Sacraments of Initiation which began at Baptism. By completing the Sacraments of Initiation calling people to deepen their journey of faith. Mandatory Parent Meetings, Family Events, Masses, Retreats, and similar events will take place throughout the year. Adults who need Confirmation can also contact the office for help completing the Sacrament.
For information on registering for the 2023-2024 year, please Glory Hartdegen.
Confirmation 1 & 2 classes will be every other Sunday evening from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. You are strongly encouraged to attend the 5:00pm Y Cubed Mass before class on Sunday evening, pizza and community for students after mass from 6:00pm to 6:30pm.

The Adult Confirmation process is an interactive opportunity for Catholics who have not had the opportunity to receive the sacrament of Confirmation to complete their full initiation into the Catholic Church. This process emphasizes the basics of Catholic teaching respecting the adult audience’s many concerns, questions and responsibilities. Every potential candidate for adult confirmation must schedule an initial meeting with the Pastor or his delegate for adult confirmation.
Each person is to submit a recent dated copy of their Baptism Certificate. The original certificate issued at the time of baptism is not acceptable. If the individual does not have such a copy at hand, they are to contact the parish (or diocese) where their baptism took place and request a new certificate.
Each adult confirmand must have a sponsor and be one (1) person throughout the process. Sponsors must meet the following requirements at the minimum, but should be fully active in their own parishes, and be able to validly receive Holy Communion.
• Must be at least 18 years old.
• Must be a practicing Catholic, fully initiated (Baptism, Eucharist, Confirmation) in the Catholic Church.
• Must not be parent, step-parent, or guardian of the adult.
• If married, marriage must be formally recognized by the Catholic Church.
• Is not the spouse or fiancé of the intended participant.
To express your interest in Adult Confirmation, please contact our associate Pastor, Fr. Evan Bui.
