The Sacrament of Confirmation is an affirmation of our desire to live out our baptismal identity – in Christ, with our Christian community. The ongoing power of the Holy Spirit is alive in our hearts and through the Sacrament, the grace of Baptism is deepened and gifts of the Holy Spirit are bestowed and intensified.
We desire for families to understand that Confirmation formation at Epiphany is not just a special year with a special program, but an extension of an ongoing life of faith and community in Christ. Youth in 8th-12th grade are invited to discern Confirmation while continuing to participate in the ongoing life of their middle/high school communities.
Youth in grades 8th-12th who desire to discern reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation are invited to register. Registration for the 2022-2023 school year is now closed.
Youth in Confirmation will meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:00-7:30 pm, taking part in our ongoing life of faith as a community at Epiphany. Epiphany Catholic School youth are invited to register for Wednesday evening formation and community as well, though not required.
All candidates accompanied by a parent or their sponsor will gather for 4 Sunday sessions on September 18, October 30, January 22, and March 26 from 10:15- 11:00 am in the Library, following the 9 am Mass. Attendance at all Sunday sessions is important and required for Confirmation.
