Confirmation

Confirmation is the sacrament of Christian maturity. In receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit, the baptized are enriched and strengthened in their witness to Christ. The Spirit comes to us, enabling and empowering us to live as fully initiated members of the Catholic Church and sons and daughters of God who extend the message of Christ to the world.

Confirmation for Young People

At Infant Jesus of Prague Parish, Confirmation is usually celebrated on a Saturday in the spring of eighth grade. Preparation begins in seventh grade and continues in eighth grade through the student’s school or Religious Education classes. For more information contact Pat Kahl at (708) 799-5400.

Confirmation for Adults

High School students and adults who are seeking to be Confirmed generally do so through our Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) program. To get started, contact Pat Kahl at (708) 799-5400, to discuss your faith journey and to determine the appropriate preparation and the timing for the celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation.
