Confirmation is one of the seven sacraments of the Catholic Church. It is the last of three initiation rites for Catholics, the other two being Baptism and First Holy Communion.

At St. Mary, Cause of Our Joy Confirmation is normally celebrated in the spring after two full years of preparation. During their 7th and 8th grade years the elect engage in classwork, Christ Service and Retreats. Sponsors play an integral part in the preparation process.

See the Catechetical Calendar for upcoming dates.
