Welcome to St. Brendan’s Teen Confirmation Program!
Our multi-year program beginning in 7th grade is designed to prepare your teen for the Holy Sacrament of Confirmation. This Sacrament of Confirmation is received in 10th grade or older. We are here to help and support your teen through deepening their faith and understanding of Christ in this beautiful time of preparation as they become their own person in our Catholic faith. Once they have received the sacrament and become fully formed members of the Church, they will be empowered to go out and spread the Good News.
Come Holy Spirit!

Confirmation Mass Dress Code - Even though we are using Confirmation robes provided by St. Brendan's, a dress code will still be required. The Confirmation robes will be given to each teen on the day of the Confirmation Mass. Please also ask the sponsors to wear Mass Appropriate clothing under the same guidelines as our teens.
Boys are asked to wear a dress shirt with tie, dress slacks and dress shoes.
Girls are asked to wear a nice dress or skirt that is appropriate for Mass. Necklines should be no lower than four fingers below the collarbone (absolutely, no cleavage), and no bare shoulders. Hemlines should at the Knee.

Are you an adult Catholic who has never received Confirmation? We invite you to take part in the ten-month process of preparation to receive this essential sacrament at Easter. Weekly sessions take place on Sunday mornings from 8:30 to 10:45 am. These sessions run from early August through May. Then at the Easter Vigil Mass each year, those who have continued the process faithfully enter the Church and receive any of the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, First Communion, Confirmation) that they have not yet received.
