Sacrament of Confirmation for Youth & Adults
The Sacrament of Confirmation is, with Baptism and Eucharist, one of the three Sacraments of Initiation; Confirmation completes and confirms the grace of baptism. At the Rite of Confirmation, the candidate is anointed with the sacred chrism and the baptized person is enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit, and more than ever obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed. (Catechism of the Catholic Church).
The Sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated in 8th grade and for High School & Adults at St. Stephen:
8th Grade Confirmation: Our Youth Confirmation Program will begin Sunday, September 23, 2018 beginning at 4:00 - 5:00 pm at the Family Life Center. Our Youth Confirmation Program is a two year program with preparation beginning in the 7th grade Edge Program and is completed at the end of 8th grade year, consisting of two consecutive years of Faith Formation. Our first parent meeting will be on Sunday, August 26, 2018 at the Family Life Center. Please refer to our 8th Confirmation Schedule 2018-2019.
