Confirmation is a Sacrament of Initiation that is closely connected to Baptism and the Eucharist. It strengthens an individual's bond with the church and enriches them with an outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
As with all sacraments, preparation is parish-based. Prior to preparation, each candidate must have two years of Catholic School or Faith Formation instruction. Confirmation is a two-year program beginning in grade 8 (or higher). The Confirmation Mass is celebrated at Sacred Heart Cathedral on a date pre-determined by the Diocese following completion of the two-year program.
