Confirmation, together with Baptism and Eucharist, form the Sacraments of Initiation that are all intimately connected. In the Sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized person is “sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit” and is strengthened for service to the Body of Christ.
Currently in our Diocese, the Sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated when a young person reaches their sophomore year of high school or older. The preparation is about a year long and aimed at nurturing and stretching the growing faith of youth.
Some of the components include: speakers, discussions, service projects, prayer, worship, community building, and an overnight retreat. (Confirmation of Adults is made available periodically when scheduled by the Bishop.)

Christian Initiation of Adults:
Adults wishing to become Catholic or to learn more about the Catholic faith may take part in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). During this process adults are helped in various ways to feel at home in the Catholic Church.
We encourage parishioners to become part of this process of welcoming new members by sharing their faith at gatherings, helping with retreats, and by sponsoring new members. Training and encouragement are parish led.
A team of parishioners provides a sponsoring community; each of these adults has experienced the R.C.I.A. process prior to joining the team.
