Confirmation

The Sacrament of Initiation

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”  (Joshua 1:9)
 
Confirmation is an important time in our spiritual growth and development. In Baptism, our parents spoke our faith commitment in our name. Now, we are offered an opportunity to speak for ourselves of our acceptance of Jesus and his church. To prepare for Confirmation and to show that you are willing to take on responsibility in your parish family and community, each of you will be required to perform service. 
 
Confirmation is celebrated in 8th grade at St. Josaphat. All parish children will attend the School or Religious Education Program from First through Eighth Grade to prepare to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in the Spring of their Eighth Grade Year.  Throughout your Eighth Grade Year, you will: choose a Saint Name and write a Saint Report, choose a sponsor, write a letter to the Bishop, and finish all required service projects.     

Adult Confirmation is celebrated frequently throughout the year for those over 18 years old who have been baptized, received the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist and received formal catechesis, but for some reason were not confirmed. A short period of instruction is required.
