“The Sacrament of Confirmation impresses a character and by it the baptized, continuing on the path of Christian initiation, are enriched by the gift of the Holy Spirit and bound more perfectly to the Church; it straightens them and obliges them more firmly to be witnesses to Christ by word and deed and to spread and defend the faith.” (Canon 879).
The Sacrament of Confirmation will be offered for Our Lady of the Valley in the Spring of even numbered years. We offer Confirmation for anyone from 7th grade and older. Students must have been attending either a Catholic School or a parish religious education program (i.e. PREP) since 5th grade to be eligible. Young adult preparation, which begins in the Fall includes classes, service projects, and a retreat. Older adults needing to be confirmed will prepare in the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) program.
