The Sacrament of Confirmation is a mature Christian commitment and a deepening of baptismal gifts. Like Baptism and Eucharist, it is a Sacrament of Initiation for Catholics and a Sacrament of faith in God’s fidelity to us.
High School Confirmation
Students who have reached the 10th grade are invited to our Confirmation program. The Confirmation program is administered annually at the parish level by the Youth Ministry Office. Preparation for youth includes participating in a retreat; making public commitment (Rite of Enrollment); attending large group learning sessions; meeting, studying, and praying regularly with his/her sponsor; completing assignments; performing community service; receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation; and regularly attending Sunday Mass.
Youth and families who would like more information about Confirmation, please contact Deanna Dean at (317) 257-4297.
Each year at the Cathedral, the Archbishop holds Confirmation for adults who have been baptized and have received some religious education, but have not, for whatever reason, been confirmed. Each year, the North Deanery parishes sponsor a retreat for individuals who are going to be confirmed. If you are a baptized adult who would like to be confirmed, please contact the parish office.
