Although many receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in their early teenage years, long after they have already received First Communion (Holy Eucharist), Confirmation is considered the second Sacrament of Initiation.

In some writings, Confirmation is considered to be the “perfecting” of the Baptism, in that the Baptized are “more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit.


Santa Maria Goretti offers sacramental preparation for children preparing for Confirmation. Courses begin in January of each year, culminating in the sacramental celebration.

Learning resources are now available for our families to pick up at the Parish Office. Parents are asked to work through the book together with their child to prepare them for their sacrament.
