Confirmation is the sacrament that completes a child’s initiation into the church with rites to strengthen them for their adult faith journey. With Confirmation we accept our mission to live and proclaim the Word of God. Children may receive the Sacrament of Confirmation as of Grade 7.

St. Basil’s runs a preparatory program for Confirmation on an alternate year basis. The program will next be offered in October 2018.

For more information contact the Director of Family Ministry: Marilena Berardinelli.

Unbaptized adults or baptized adults from other Christian churches participate in the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (R.C.I.A.), a formal process that is universal in the Roman Catholic Church. Depending on the particular background and readiness of catechumens and candidates, some may be baptized, and/or confirmed, and communed at the Easter Vigil Mass, while others may be welcomed into the church at other times.

Adults interested in receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation should contact the Director of Parish Ministry for more information.
