“It shall come to pass after this, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy: your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions. Moreover upon my servants and handmaids in those days I will pour forth my spirit.”
Joel 2:28-29

Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation is a two-year process for high school students. The program is designed to help Confirmation students come to a deeper understanding of how the Holy Spirit works in their lives, and in the life of our church, and how they can interact with that Spirit to draw them into a closer relationship with God.

All candidates are called to active involvement in the parish; including Confirmation classes, Mass, drop-in nights, youth group, service projects, retreats, and the desire to grow in the understanding of one’s own faith.

Safe Environment

All catechists and volunteers will be background checked and trained in compliance with the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People.

The Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People is a comprehensive set of procedures established by the USCCB in June 2002 for addressing allegations of sexual abuse of minors by Catholic clergy. The Charter also includes guidelines for reconciliation, healing, accountability, and prevention of future acts of abuse.

The Charter directs action in all the following matters:

  • Creating a safe environment for children and young people.
  • Healing and reconciliation of victims and survivors.
  • Making prompt and effective response to allegations.
  • Cooperating with civil authorities; Disciplining offenders.


One of the requirements of the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People is that parishes make information available regarding Sexual Abuse and how to report it.  Complaints about sexual abuse by a member of the clergy or by a parish or Catholic school employee or volunteer can be made by contacting Lisa Petronis: 858-490-8353 or click here .
