• In Baptism, we receive new life in the Spirit.
  • In the Eucharist, we nurture that new life with the Body and Blood of our Lord.
  • In Confirmation, we receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit that enable us to live that new life in a public way, bearing testimony to the grace of God alive within us.

The three Sacraments of Initiation are intimately bound together, even though they may be received at different intervals in our lives.

Confirmation is a two year program of preparation at St. Elizabeth Seton Parish with students normally receiving the sacrament in their sophomore year.  Older students desiring to be Confirmed should contact the Student Faith Formation Office for information on a modified Confirmation Preparation Process.  The Church wants to bless its members with this wonderful Sacrament, so we look forward to working with you!
