Confirmation

Confirmation is the sacrament that completes a person’s initiation into the Catholic Church. The recommended age to begin the preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis is age 13. Therefore, the normal year of preparation to receive the sacrament is the 8th grade, however, older youth and adults can receive the sacrament after proper catechesis and preparation.

Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation will occur during our Wednesday Evening Religious Education (WNRE).

Choosing a Saint Name

A candidate may choose a Confirmation name or retain a recognized saint's name given at Baptism.  In either case, it is important to have a saint's name as part of the Confirmation rite.  A Confirmation name is a permanent reminder which links the candidate with the way in which the mission of Jesus lives on in those special persons recognized by the Church as saints or heroic people in history.  The process of researching the life of a saint or non-canonized role model can be an enriching part of the preparation program and can serve as the basis for reflection on the qualities of a present-day witness for Christ.  Family members and sponsors can assist the candidate in choosing a Confirmation name.
