What is Confirmation?

Confirmation is a formative process of:

  • Catechesis (fancy way of saying "religious instruction". Pronounced cat-a-key-sis). 
  • Exposure to the ways of the local parish as well as the universal Church.
  • Relationship-building between peers, the pastor, a personal mentor, and other members of the congregation. 
  • Looking at the self in relation to God and seeing where God is in your life! This means, greatest of all, pondering what happened at your baptism and what continues to happen because of it!


There are two years of instruction where we rely heavily on the Small Catechism and the Bible. The beginning of the third year, we prepare for the culminating event: the Rite of Affirmation of Baptism. This is a magnificent day when the class presents to the congregation their faith statement, their desire to become members of the church, and their affirmation and gratefulness for what happened to them in baptism! Their family and sponsors come forward and, after making public vows, they are gifted with the laying on of hands and blessed with the Holy Spirit!
