Confirmation

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. 

Confirmation Formation

Youth in grades 8th-12th who desire to discern reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation are invited to register. 

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 will gather for 7 Sunday sessions from 10:30 am-12 pm noon, following the 9 am Mass, accompanied by a parent or sponsor.
