I WANT TO RECEIVE CONFIRMATION
According to the Church:
"The effect of Confirmation is a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit like that of Pentecost. This outpouring impresses on the soul an indelible character and produces a growth in the grace of Baptism. It roots the recipient more deeply in divine sonship, binds him more firmly to Christ and to the Church and reinvigorates the gifts of the Holy Spirit in his soul. It gives a special strength to witness to the Christian faith." The Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church (268)
Children . . .
. . . Receive the sacrament of Confirmation after a two-year preparatory program in our religious education program, and are normally confirmed at the end of their 8th grade in school. Older children are also welcome to receive Confirmation, though they participate in a (The "RCIC" the Rite of Christian Initiation of Children) for children preparing to receive their sacraments. These children would then normally be confirmed after the completion of their studies with the adults at the Easter Vigil.
Adults . . .
. . . must participate in the RCIA process (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) for at least one year to receive Confirmation. Adults are normally confirmed at the Easter Vigil.
