“Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the “sacraments of Christian initiation,” whose unity must be safeguarded. It must be explained to the faithful that the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. For ‘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, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed’.” (CCC 1285)
Confirmation is a two year, family oriented process, generally beginning in the seventh grade which prepares youth for the reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation at the end of eighth grade. For more information about classes or if you are an adult who wants to receive the sacrament of Confirmation, please contact the office at (707) 678-9424.
The first year of classes are offered in both Spanish and English. The second year of classes are combined into an English language setting.
