Young people who have reached the 8th grade are invited to prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation at St. Regis. By receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation those who have been baptized will continue their growth in faith and further their initiation into the one, holy, catholic, apostolic Church. Confirmadi receive the Holy Spirit, which Jesus sent to his first disciples at Pentecost. The Holy Spirit forms the faithful to me more like Jesus and to build up His kingdom in the world. Confirmandi will be marked with the Sacred Chrism as a seal which cannot be removed as a sign of their faith and love for God.
To receive Confirmation at St. Regis, students must be enrolled at St. Regis Catholic School or in St. Regis Faith Formation, or be a member of St. Regis Catholic Parish and attend another Catholic school.
Students must choose a sponsor who is a Confirmed Catholic and at least 16 years-old and participate in the activities listed below.
The Sacrament of Confirmation took place this year on May 7, 2017. Next year’s date has not been announced.

Father of all families, you have called catechists to serve your family in truth and love. Let your Spirit enlighten their minds and strengthen their hearts so they can be a path of Christ’s love to families, especially those in need, the homebound and aged, the disabled and disheartened. Amen.
