Confirmation

The gifts given at Baptism are sealed by the sacrament of Confirmation. Those who receive this sacrament are called forth to mission in Christ, strengthened by the Holy Spirit to respond to God's personal invitation.

Preparation for Confirmation happens during the 8th grade year.

The fee for Confirmation is $60. School families are charged through their Smart Tuition account. To register your child, complete the following steps:

  1. Fill out the Google form
  2. Pay online (if not attending Holy Spirit school)

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 7, 2019. Original certificates, copies of the original or certificates dated earlier than July 7, 2019, will not be accepted and you will need to request a new certificate.
