Sacrament of Confirmation for Youth & Adults

  

 

Congratulations to our 172 including teens and adults who received the gifts of the Holy Spirit through the Sacrament of Confirmation this year!“Baptism, the Eucharist, and the Sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the ‘Sacraments of Christian Initiation.’ By the Sacrament of Confirmation, the Baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, fully graced to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church)

The Rite of Confirmation is celebrated by anointing a person with the sacred chrism, in which they receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit and confirm one’s Baptismal promises. It is normally conferred by the Bishop and strengthens the person for service to the Body of Christ.

  • The Sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated in 8th grade, High School and Adults at St. Stephen

Adult Confirmation Program:  St. Stephen Adult Confirmation Program is offered for adults who are active in their Catholic faith, are baptized, and have received the sacrament of First Eucharist, but for various reasons were not able to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation.

Adult Confirmation is a six-week program offered in fall of each year.  Classes focus on a re-introduction and re-familiarization of all of the Catholic sacraments with special emphasis on the Sacrament of Confirmation, as well as topics such as the Church and living a sacramental and moral life.  After the six-week program is complete, the Sacrament of Confirmation is conferred with our youth by the Bishop.
