Confirmation Preparation for Teenagers
“Preparation for Confirmation should aim at leading the Christian toward a more intimate union with Christ and a more lively familiarity with the Holy Spirit – his actions, his gifts, and his biddings – in order to be more capable of assuming the apostolic responsibilities of Christian life. To this end catechesis for Confirmation should strive to awaken a sense of belonging to the Church of Jesus Christ, the universal Church as well as the parish community.” (CCC 1309)
The Sacrament of Confirmation in the Diocese of Richmond is for high school students currently in 10th grade and at least 15 years old at the reception of Confirmation.
If a high school student is in need of Baptism, First Eucharist and Confirmation, they will be apart of our Rite of Christian Initiation for Children/Teens (RCIC) program. For more on RCIC, click here.
