Confirmation, together with Baptism and Eucharist, form the Sacraments of Initiation that are all intimately connected. In the Sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized person is "sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit" and is strengthened for service to the Body of Christ. It deepens our baptismal life which calls us to be missionary witnesses of Jesus Christ in our families, neighborhoods, society, and world.

The Sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated in the Spring of 6th grade at St. Peter Chanel. There are two main components of preparation for Confirmation.

One: Foundational Formation: Sacrament preparation starts with active participation in programs that provide your child with age-appropriate explorations about our faith. This is a two-year process (5th and 6th grade year) and can be achieved in one of three ways:

  • Participation in GIFT Family Formation
  • Religion class in a Catholic school or hybrid Catholic school
  • Religion class using a formal homeschool curriculum (i.e. Seton; Mother of Divine Grace, etc.)

Two: Specific Preparation: This occurs in the second year of Foundation. All families, regardless of where they receive their foundation, participate in specific, focused, preparation for each sacrament.

  • Part One - Self-paced at-home explorations of specific content for the sacrament.
  • Part Two - Parent and Child participation in a community session following completion of the home exploration.
