CONFIRMATION is a serious and personal decision to follow Christ through the Roman Catholic Church. The baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church because it is the sacrament that gives the Holy Spirit and perfects Baptismal grace.

The Celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation is Sunday, February 4, 2018, with Archbishop Jackels.

In addition to participation in the designated events and activities, Confirmation Candidates will also need to find a sponsor and complete all the requirements.  Guidelines for these will be handed out at the Confirmation Orientation on September 10.

Parents cannot be sponsors for their own children.

Other Requirements and Considerations

  • The Confirmation Information form should be filled out and handed in to St. Columbkille. Al Baptismal certificates should be turned in to Alive, even if you were Baptized at St. Columbkille.
  • Please research and pick a Saint's name.  Your Saint's name will be written on a sheet of paper, handed to Fr. Gabriel, and reads by the Archbishop.  Example: "Francis, be sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit."

Requirements must be met before you may be confirmed.
