In the sacrament of Confirmation, we are strengthened by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit to more fully “bear witness to the Christian faith in words accompanied by deeds.” CCC#1316

Confirmation at St. Charles is celebrated with 8th grade youth or older who are ready to make the decision to confirm their Catholic faith.  Requirements include active participation in a Catholic school or Faith Formation program for at least the last two years. Preparation will consist of service projects, a retreat, and attendance at two Sunday “Spirit Mornings.” Preparation begins in September. Please watch the bulletin for more dates and times.
