Confirmation

St. Gregory the Great recognizes the beauty and importance of this final Sacrament of Initiation. Preparing for the sacrament includes two years of faith formation (catechesis), and an enriching sacramental preparation program.

Confirmation 2022
For our young people preparing to make their Confirmation in the Spring of 2022, the Sacramental preparation program is under way! Young people in this group are parishioners of St. Greg's who have completed their first year of faith formation, either by attending grade 9 at a Catholic high school, or completing a Level I Family Faith Formation class.

We ask all those requesting to receive the sacrament, complete the Family Faith Formation Application for Confirmation (please see link below).  Please note that in order to complete this application, you will need the Confirmation Sponsor's name and Parish. 

Candidates should prayerfully consider who they would like their sponsor to be. To assist with this decision, please download and read over the Qualifications of the Sponsor (see link below), and have your child ask this person if they would agree to be their sponsor.  All out-of-parish sponsors must request a letter of recommendation from their home parish. For sponsors who are parishioners at St. Gregory the Great, the FFF office will make that request on your behalf.

Once we receive the application, the Family Faith Formation Office will provide you with further sacramental details. Thank you for your attention to this information, we are excited to guide your children as their faith journey leads them to Confirmation!
