“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.” CCC #1285

Archbishop Etienne has opened Confirmation to those in the 7th Grade in school and older. We welcome baptized youth of Saint Mark parish to join us for the preparation for Confirmation.

Sponsors must be baptized & confirmed, at least 16 years old, have already received the most holy sacrament of the Eucharist, a Catholic who leads a life of faith in keeping with the function to be taken on, and not bound by any canonical penalty. The father and mother of the one to be baptized may not be that person’s sponsor. All sponsors must successfully complete a sponsor interview with Father Ross (you can view the form to be used here) or their parish priest.

To register for confirmation for your child or children, join the confirmation preparation group (below):
