Confirmation is the sacrament of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.  It confirms our faith and strengthens us as Catholics to be disciples of Jesus. Reception of this sacrament usually takes place in eighth grade and requires regular attendance at St. Barnabas Catholic School or our Religious Education Program. The path to Confirmation at St. Barnabas begins in 7th grade, with an emphasis on service, and continues in 8th grade, with preparation for the sacrament.

For further details, please see Youth/Sacrament Preparation/Confirmation or contact the Religious Education Office at 773-445-3450.
