The gifts given at Baptism are sealed by the sacrament of Confirmation. Those who receive this sacrament are not just called forth in a particular way to the mission of being a Christian, but through the Holy Spirit they are given the strength necessary to accomplish this task.

Confirmation 2017 will be held on Sunday, May 21 at 2 p.m. at the Cathedral of St. Paul.

Please provide Holy Spirit with a recently issued Baptismal Certificate, Attn: Confirmation. This may be obtained from the church where your child was baptized. The certificate must be issued after July 11, 2016. Original certificates, copies of the original or certificates dated earlier than July 11, 2016, will not be accepted and you will need to request a new certificate.

Fees: Holy Spirit School families will be charged a $30 Sacramental Fee on their Smart Tuition family account in the month of November.

For students enrolled in schools other than Holy Spirit, there is a fee of $60. Please make checks to Holy Spirit, attention Confirmation.
