Confirmation 2023-2024

For those desiring to receive the sacrament of Confirmation, you will need to complete the Confirmation Discernment Project by our first session together. This project is available here.

Who is able to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation?

9th-12th graders are welcome to come to Catechesis to discern receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation. For adequate preparation for our ninth grade students, if you are not in Catholic school, contact Anna Murphy (  to sign up for a catechetical overview to give you formation for discernment and overview of what graces and commitment you are making in the Sacrament of Confirmation while you are still in 8th grade.

What if I’d like to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation and am older than 12th grade?

We are so grateful and excited for your discernment! Please contact Anna Murphy ( or Charlie Domen ( to begin the discernment process to receive this Sacrament.

ASAP – Please obtain a “Letter of Good Standing” form from whomever you ask to be your Confirmation sponsor. This person should be a practicing Catholic who has received all 3 sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, First Communion, and Confirmation), attends mass, and is active in their faith.
