High School Confirmation

Confirmation is a Sacrament of Initiation that deepens your faith life and allows you to see how the Holy Spirit is working in your life. It enlivens and deepens the gifts of the Holy Spirit which we received at our Baptism. Confirmation Preparation for high school students is a two year process. Candidates must fill our a registration form each year they are a part of the program. Sessions run each year from September to May. Confirmation Mass is held in the spring of the candidates second year of preparation. Sessions are held on the first, third, and fifth Wednesdays of the month from 6:00-8:00pm in the rooms of the Church. Please see the Confirmation Calendar for specific dates. For more information, contact the Office of Faith Formation at: 714-842-3000 ext. 114 or send an email to:
