All teens who are in need of other Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Reconciliation and/or First Eucharist) are invited to join our Confirmation Program. There is no better place for them to be to get excited about our beautiful faith, than with other teens who love Jesus!
Full Initiation: Baptism, First Communion and Confirmation Preparation
All teens desiring full initiation into the Catholic Church will complete our program and receive full initiation after two years at the parish Easter Vigil. There is no separate registration for Baptism or First Communion; you must register for Confirmation and indicate that you are in need of additional Sacramental preparation. All teens also participate in the Church’s Rites of Initiation for the Diocese of Orange and parish scrutinies during Lent.
First Communion and Confirmation Preparation
Teens will prepare for First Communion concurrently with Confirmation. All teens needing these two Sacraments will attend all Confirmation events and one additional First Communion day retreat per year. Teens who complete the Confirmation Program and retreat requirements will receive First Communion at the Confirmation Mass.
