Our confirmation process is for students in 9th - 12th grade who have already made a commitment to Jesus Christ in baptism and are looking to take a step deeper into their faith. We offer different options for Confirmation preparation throughout the spring to help students discern when they are ready to receive the sacrament.
Dear Families, our 2022-2023 Confirmation registration is now open! To enroll please choose an option below.

The Eclifeteen Confirmation process:
Our Program can be completed from September-May, or teens can start in September and finish when they feel they are ready. We offer a rolling program so there is flexibility for families to take as long as they need.
The first step in the process is to register for our program and join the email list. Further info and explanation is given after a teen is registered. Registration can be found at the top of this page.
