Sacrament of Confirmation
Confirmation is the sacrament that completes the grace we receive in Baptism. It seals, or confirms, this grace through the seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit that we receive as part of Confirmation. This sacrament also makes us better able to participate in the worship and apostolic life of the church. Like Baptism, Confirmation is received only once in a person’s life.
The Sacraments of Initiation solemnly mark the entrance of an individual into the adult Catholic Christian community. This initiation signifies that the person has died to sin and is reborn in Christ. Through Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist, one becomes a full member of the Body of Christ, the Church.
Confirmation for Young People
We offer the Sacrament of Confirmation for our 8th Grade students via St. Albert the Great Parish School and PREP programs.
The journey begins in the Spring of the 7th Grade Year.
These students prepare for the sacrament of confirmation using the “Chosen” textbook, the video based “Chosen” curriculum and our sacramental preparation program of components and faith experiences. For more information or to register for Confirmation for youth from grades 8-12, contact Emileigh Ledgerwood: 502-425-3940 ext. 116 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Those of you in the 8th Grade or older who are interested in learning more about, and/or preparing to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation are asked to attend with your parent(s) an important meeting on Thursday, August 29 at 7:00 pm in the Parish Life Complex. This will be a brief meeting to explain the enrollment and preparation process. We are excited to offer you this opportunity to grow in your faith.
Please mark your calendar for the Student/Sponsor Retreat Day which will take place September 28 from 2:00-6:00 pm (This includes the Covenant Rite at the 5:00 pm Mass).

Confirmation for Adults
ADULT CONFIRMATION (NON-CATHOLIC)
Non-Catholic adults are prepared for confirmation through a process called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). This process invites participants to pray, examine Catholic beliefs, and to begin to experience Gods love through the Catholic community. The process moves through several stages and culminates with the participant celebrating full communion with the Church at Easter.
ADULT CONFIRMATION (CATHOLIC)
Catholic adults who have not celebrated confirmation are prepared through a six week regional process offered each Spring and Fall. For more information, please contact Fr. Albert Anover at 425-3940.
