Policy for The Sacrament of Confirmation


For a Catholic, Confirmation is a sacrament of initiation - the beginning of accepting new responsibilities in the Catholic Church.  The other two Sacraments of initiation are Baptism and Eucharist.  Although it is the last Sacrament of Initiation to be celebrated, Confirmation does not mark the end of a person's formal religious education; rather it is the beginning of a deeper belief, a fuller involvement, and a stronger service to the Church.

It is diocesan policy that the celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation for our young people be held during the eighth grade year of school.  A separate preparation program for all eighth graders is also required by the Diocese of Youngstown along with being enrolled in St. Michael's School or the Parish School of Religion (Families Together, PSR Homeschooling, Family Faith & Classes, Hybrid High School Program, etc.)

Those who have not been active in any religious education program and who wish to be Confirmed in the eighth grade will be assisted in catching up on some of the formation they have missed.

Any adult who has been Baptized and made their First Communion, but has not been confirmed may enter the RCIA program. Please click here for more information about RCIA. 

Our 8th grade confirmation will be on Saturday, May 6th, 2023 at 1:00pm.

For further information, please contact the Parish Office at 330-492-3119.
