Confirmation

Click here to print: 2022/2023 Confirmation Class Registration Form

A person is welcomed into the Catholic Church through the three Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism makes you a member of the Church, the Eucharist feeds and strengthens you, and Confirmation helps you to be a witness to your faith. At OLPH Confirmation is usually celebrated when a child is in Grade 6 or older.  Through this sacrament God pours out the Holy Spirit to strengthen us with His gifts and anoints us to be more like Christ

Our parish offers sacramental preparation, to support and encourage parents in their role as the first teachers and models of the faith. This includes classes for Parents (or sponsors) and Children to attend together at the church as well as scheduling dedicated study time together at home, prior to reception of the Sacraments.
