Confirmation

Through the Sacrament of Confirmation, we are strengthened by the Holy Spirit to go out and proclaim the Gospel to the world! In order to prepare for such a great endeavor, our Confirmation program seeks to inspire our Confirmation candidates to grow in their relationship with God, to know what it means to be Catholic, and to live as a witness for Christ. Preceded by Baptism and First Communion, the Sacrament of Confirmation completes one’s initiation into the Catholic Church. Confirmation Preparation is a two-year process for high school age teens.

We are currently using “Chosen” and “Altaration” for our confirmation programs. In addition to the sessions, we also ask candidates to make a yearly retreat and increase their prayer life and service in both the parish and community.

Please contact Virginia Gelhar for more information or to register at 952-442-3705 or  vgelhar@stjosephwaconia.org.
