Confirmation is the sacrament that seals and completes the Christian Initiation of Baptism. That’s why, when adults are initiated at the Easter Vigil, they are baptized and confirmed at the same time. But for people baptized as infants, confirmation happens when they are adolescents.
The Sacrament of Confirmation is taught in the eighth and ninth grade years at St. Paul.
Catechists are part of the Parish Religious Education Program under the direction of the Director of Religious Education.
Training and materials are provided for Catechists.
Sponsors for Confirmation youth should be in good standing with the Church and active participants. Sponsors commit to helping the youth to grow in their relationship with the Lord.
