Confirmation

Confirmation

Confirmation is a sacrament of initiation in the church through which the baptized person is sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit and strengthened to go out and serve others. Those being confirmed choose a confirmation name in order to symbolize their identity as disciples of Christ who are ready to go out and live their faith boldly. During the sacrament, the candidate is anointed with the oil of chrism as a sign of their consecration to Christ. Confirmation increases baptismal grace and strengthens the gifts of the Holy Spirit. A confirmation sponsor who is a Catholic in good standing is also selected for the sacrament.


In St. Peter Parish, Confirmation is administered at the high school age. Please contact the parish youth minister for more information. At least a year of preparation with the high school youth group is required. Adults wishing to be confirmed but first go through instructional classes. Contact Sally Clark at the parish office for more information. 419-433-5725.
