To receive this sacrament, individuals must be baptized Catholics and have already received their First Reconciliation and First Eucharist.
About gr. 6 or age 12
Children must be baptized prior to celebrating other sacraments. If baptism is needed, please contact the parish office. It is recommended that children celebrate the sacraments of First Reconciliation (Confession) and First Eucharist (Holy Communion) prior to celebrating the sacrament of Confirmation.
The Church recognizes parents as the first and best teachers of the faith for their children (Second Vatican Council, Gravissum Educationis, 28 October 1965; Saint John Paul II, Letter to Families, 2 February 1994). The parish will support you with excellent resources and guidance.

Confirmation Preparation Project Confirmation Project Sample
- Read pages eight and nine in the workbook and complete the two questions under “My Thoughts” on page 10 in the workbook.
- Key Ring Discussion: There are six “Talk Tags” at the back of the workbook. Each “Talk Tag” has two sides. Find the “Talk Tag” that has the question found on page 10 of the workbook: How does knowing that Jesus died to save us change the way you live or feel about life? This question should be discussed between parents and candidates (children). The back of the “Talk Tag” asks the candidates (children) to contact their godparents and “Thank them for being there at baptism.” There may be unique circumstances that make this impossible; if this is the case, omit this part.
- Read and discuss page 13 in the workbook. This will be an introduction to Lesson #2.
