Confirmation, Immaculate Conception Parish Summer 2017 and Fall 2017-2018 (see bottom of this page for all information)

Confirmation

The Confirmation preparation process guides the candidate into the experience of the fullness of the Holy Spirit through the completion of the Sacraments of Initiation. Confirmation completes the grace of Baptism by the outpouring of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, which seals one’s baptism and unites the believer intimately to Christ and equips one to live as a disciple.

Confirmation for adults is available for those 18 and older who have received the Sacrament of the Eucharist and catechesis in the Catholic faith through eighth grade.

For  more information, Contact the Religious Ed. office Immaculate Conception.

Our Curriculum for Confirmation!

Chosen utilizes a powerful and effective methodology with lessons designed to capture teens’ attention and present the faith in new and unexpected ways. Featuring multiple dynamic presenters in visually stunning, fast-paced videos, along with fully integrated written materials for students and leaders as well as a rich offering of free, online resources, Chosen is unlike anything available in the Church today.

We have a multi-generational approach to the sacramental preparation process.  We ask that the sponsor or parent or another adult attend the learning sessions with their candidate.  This model provides for lifelong learning on the part of the adult and it supports the candidate and sponsor/parent in sharing their faith together.
