Confirmation

Confirmation registration for the '22-'23 year is now open! 
**MUST HAVE COMPLETED A YEAR OF FAITH FORMATION AT THE PARISH PRIOR TO ENROLLING IN CONFIRMATION PREP**

The sacrament of Confirmation is, with Baptism and Eucharist, one of the three sacraments of initiation. Confirmation completes and "confirms" the grace of Baptism. Through the anointing with the sacred chrism the baptized person is "enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit," and more than ever "obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed" (Catechism 1285).

 Confirmation classes begin in mid-September and run to the date of Confirmation in mid-May. Classes are held Sundays, 11:30-1:00pm. 

 

Volunteers are needed to lead and assist the classes.  All volunteers must complete the Safe Environment Training offered through the VIRTUS program.   Please contact Allison Ramirez at allison@stbarbarachurch.org if you are interested in volunteering with Confirmation.
