Sacraments and Rites



Confirmation is celebrated each year in the parish. Through this sacrament, the candidate is strengthened by the power of the Holy Spirit, made a true witness of Christ in word and deed, and invited more deeply into the life of the Church. Confirmation is part of mentoring a future generation of Christians, of nurturing their idealism, affirming the promise of their lives, and immersing them in the Christian vision of building a community of love and justice in the world. These candidates are the future and the promise of our Church. It is our responsibility to call these young men and women into the future with us.

Adults interested in receiving this sacrament should contact the Religious Education Office at 724-625-1665 for more information.

For parish youth, the Sacrament of Confirmation occurs in the Spring of their eighth grade year who have completed both Year 1 and Year 2 of Confirmation preparation through the Faith Formation Office. Parents of a child looking to make their Confirmation, please click here for information.
