Confirmation is the final Sacrament of Christian Initiation, in which we are sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit and consecrated for mission. It is the grace we receive from Confirmation that empowers each of us to follow his/her own vocation and do whatever work God has given him/her to do.

These instructions are for families of teenagers under the age of 18 who are seeking Confirmation. If you are an adult over the age of 18 and have not received Confirmation, please email Elise Flick at to sign up for our adult Sacrament prep class.

Students typically take the 2-year Confirmation class during their 7th and 8th grade years. Registration opens over the summer each year and concludes the Sunday after Labor Day. See our Religious Education page for up-to-date information about this year's class. Please be sure to read the instructions below before registering.

Enrolling in the Confirmation Class

There are four things you will need to do before your child can receive the Sacrament of Confirmation:


Step #1: Ensure that your family is registered in the parish

If you are not registered in our parish, you can register here. We can only enroll registered members of the parish in Sacrament preparation classes.

If you are already registered at St. Ann, continue to the next step. Once you enroll in the class, we will pull your membership file and let you know if we need any additional information.


Step #2: Provide copies of your child's birth certificate, Baptism certificate, and First Holy Communion certificate

Only baptized Christians can receive Confirmation, and for this reason we need to have record of your child's previous sacraments. If he/she is missing any Sacraments, we can address that before Confirmation.


We are required to collect a copy of your child's birth certificate to make sure that the information we print on the Confirmation certificate matches perfectly. Your child will need to present this document before receiving additional sacraments or serving as a godparent/sponsor for someone else--matching up your child's birth certificate with our sacramental records ensures we can always prove that he/she is the same person our records refer to if his/her future parish calls us to verify. We are happy to make copies for you if you bring your child's certificates by the parish office.

Step #3: Enroll in the First Holy Communion Class

Sign up for First Holy Communion class before classes start in the Fall.


Step #4: First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion

Dates for your child's First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion will be announced to parents once they are scheduled. Students must make their first confession before they can receive Holy Communion. If the dates pose a problem for you, please speak to your child's teacher.
