What is Confirmation?

The preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation is an important component of our catechetical and sacramental ministry.

Confirmation is one of the three sacraments of initiation of the Catholic Church, along with Baptism and Eucharist. Confirmation will unleash the Holy Spirit in your life, just as it did on the apostles at Pentecost. In this way Confirmation perpetuates Pentecost in the Church, so that the work of Jesus can be continued in every age. This sacrament, which provides the fullness of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, is of great spiritual assistance to our youth during this time in their lives.

Our Lady of Fatima has a two-year preparation that starts at 9th grade. We have several local retreats throughout the course of the two years. Our teens conclude their preparation with one retreat out of town that starts of Friday, and concludes with mass on Sunday.

We are all called to serve, if you feel in your heart that Christ is calling you to serve with us; please contact the parish office or email at
