About Confirmation at Seton

Confirmation seals our life of faith in Jesus. Its signs are the laying on of hands on a person's head, most often by a bishop, and the anointing with oil. Like Baptism, Confirmation is received only once.

Preparation for Confirmation at Seton is dependent on the age of the person seeking to be confirmed.

Youth

Grades 11 - 12

Adult

Youth (Grades 11-12)

Confirmation Preparation

Confirmation Preparation is available for teens in 11th and 12th grade. Preparation begins in October and ends in May. Information about Formation Sessions will be available soon for 2023 - 2024.

While preparing for Confirmation, candidates will strengthen their relationship with Jesus, deepen their prayer life, expand their understanding of the Catholic faith, enjoy fellowship with each other and the wider Seton community, and seek out their God-given purpose. Youth will also experience a Confirmation retreat and other faith formation activities such as service projects, social gatherings, and at-home activities.

Sponsor Sessions

Confirmation Candidates and Sponsors, thank you for committing to growing closer to Christ together! These sponsor sessions are a great time for you to strengthen your relationship with each other and with God. Each session, you'll read some content, watch a short video, and engage in lots of discussion. There are 5 different topics to choose from. You must complete at least 3 of them, but you can choose to do more. The sessions will take between 30 minutes and 1 hour to complete, and you can choose the time and location where you complete them. Please meet 3 different times and not do them all in one meeting. We recommend spacing out the sessions. Also, don’t forget to fill out the "Sponsor Sessions" online form confirming that you completed at least 3 Sponsor Sessions by April 6th.

Adults

Sacramental Preparation

If you are an adult who has been baptized and raised in the Catholic Church but has not yet been Confirmed, you are invited to join us to prepare to receive the Sacrament. Once each year, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton facilitates an approximately ten-session preparation process, leading to celebration of the Sacrament at our Easter Vigil.

If you have never been baptized, were baptized in another Christian church and now wish to come into full communion with the Catholic Church, or were baptized in the Catholic Church but were not raised in the faith and are seeking to receive the Sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation, please contact Sue Switalski.
