Confirmation

What is Confirmation?

Confirmation, one of the three Sacraments of Initiation into the Church, together with Baptism and Eucharist, completes the grace of Baptism by an extraordinary outpouring of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, which seal or “confirm” the baptized in union with Christ and equip them for active participation in the worship and apostolic life of the Church.

Confirmation for teens occurs in high school, grades 9th – 12th.

What do I have to do to be Confirmed?

Confirmation sessions are on two Wednesday evenings per month, two days of reflections during Advent and Lent, and one Weekend Retreat.  A component of Confirmation preparation requires a total of 30 hours of service, ten at home, and 20 in the Church or the broader community.

What is Confirmation preparation like? Is it a class?

The short answer is, yes, it is a class. However, it is so much more than a lass too! Confirmation preparation is meant to be a transformative experience. The curriculum is 20+ sessions with a strong focus on evangelizing young people and accompanying them as they become disciples.

How do I sign my student up for Confirmation?

Parents of High School Students are encouraged signup online or in the Church office to register the whole family for Faith Formation.

Confirmation students will have additional paperwork to fill out and sign. These forms will include sponsor forms, service commitments, the affirmation of baptismal name, and liability waivers for service events, etc.…

To schedule an appointment, contact Jordan Trejo, Youth, and Young Adult Coordinator, in the Church office 407-855-5391 ext. 266 or by e-mail at jtrejo@sjvorlando.org
