What is the Sacrament of Confirmation?
Confirmation is one of the Sacraments of Initiation into the Church. Together with Baptism and Eucharist, Confirmation completes the grace of Baptism by a special outpouring of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, which seal or “confirm” the baptized in union with Christ and empower them for active participation in the worship and apostolic life of the Church.
The Sacrament of Confirmation is usually received in 10th grade following a two-year preparation program offered during the ninth and tenth grade Faith Formation classes. For current curriculum information, class schedules, calendars and registration information, please visit the High School Faith Formation & Youth Ministry page.

Confirmation 2014 will be held on Sunday, June 1st at 1:30 p.m. at the Basilica.
