​Confirmation brings to completion the grace received through baptism.  By this sacrament the baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched by the strength of the Holy Spirit.

This gift conforms believers more fully to Christ and strengthen them to bear witness to Christ for the building of His body in faith and love.

The current practice for the reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation in the Diocese of Greensburg is enhanced by a catechetical and pastoral model that continues to advance and deepen the understanding of this life-giving sacrament for children, youth, young adults and adults.

Currently, the Sacrament of Confirmation is scheduled on a biennial basis for children in grades 8 and 9.  Formation/preparation for the Sacrament is required one year prior to reception.

If you have any questions regarding the Sacrament of Confirmation, please contact Katie Tylinski, Regional Director of Faith Formation, via email.  You may also reach her by phoning the parish office: 724-845-8191.
