At Confirmation we receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit, we confirm and renew our baptismal promises, and we make a more mature commitment to living a life in the Christian faith.
Children in the eighth grade at Resurrection School are prepared for the reception of Confirmation before the end of the school year. Parents of children not attending Resurrection School should contact the Parish Religious Education Program (PREP), which is Resurrection’s CCD program, at (914) 925-2754 for complete information regarding arrangements for reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation. Before a child may receive Confirmation, First Holy Communion, or First Reconciliation, he or she must complete two years of formal classroom religious education.
For information regarding adult Confirmation, please consult Right of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA).
