Confirmation Preparation

2022-2023

   The Sacrament of Confirmation

This is the second of the “Sacraments of Christian Initiation.”  This sacrament seals the baptized person with the grace and gifts of the Holy Spirit and gives the person additional strength to live and defend the faith.

In keeping with diocesan guidelines, Our Lady of the Rosary implements a two-year program to prepare for Confirmation. The first year of the program consists in participation in religion classes at Our Lady of the Rosary School, St. Joseph’s Catholic School, or Sunday religious education classes for those in public schools. In addition to the same requirements as the first year, Confirmation candidates attend a series of additional classes and activities. At Our Lady of the Rosary Parish, the sacrament of Confirmation is administered in the Spring of 8th grade.

If your child attends a public school, he/she needs to continue attending the Sunday morning religious education classes in addition to the Confirmation classes.

CONFIRMATION REQUIREMENTS:

  • Participation in the Real Love & Real Life Program- (Presented by Family Honor, Inc.) You need to sign-up and purchase tickets online for this program here
  • Faithful attendance at Confirmation classes
  • Retreat day
  • Saint presentation
  • Confirmation preparation requires a commitment on both the part of the parent and the Confirmation candidate. We are looking forward to preparing your children for this beautiful sacrament.
