The Sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated each year for adult Catholics (who have been baptized and have received First Communion) and for High School students.
ADULT CONFIRMATION: An Invitation for Adults Who have not been Confirmed.
For most of us, the Sacrament of Confirmation was celebrated when we were either in junior high or in high school. For those adults in the RCIA, their Confirmation is celebrated when they are Baptized at the Easter Vigil. For some, especially in Latin countries, the custom was to Confirm at Baptism as infants. At any rate, for a variety of reasons, many adult Catholics have not been confirmed.
This invitation is for you. If you are 19 years of age, and have made your First Communion, but have not been Confirmed, I invite you to join me and others in a preparation program this spring so that you will be Confirmed on Pentecost Sunday, May 31at 11am Mass, here at St. Timothy Church.
HOW DO I RSVP? Either come to the parish office and pick up a registration form, or download the registration form, fill it out, and return by March 18th.
WHEN DO CLASSES START? We will begin on Monday, March 9th with an Information evening at 7pm in the Upper Room; the classes will start Monday, April 13th and continue on a weekly basis through May 1st .
WHAT ELSE DO I NEED? You will need to get a new copy of your baptism certificate; you will need to get a Confirmed Catholic to be your sponsor and to accompany you to class; and you will need an open heart and mind to receive the power of the Holy Spirit.
I am looking forward to meeting you, teaching you, and sharing this journey with you for the final step toward your final step of Initiation into our Catholic faith. Any questions? Please call me at 949 973 9021 or email me at email@example.com.

High School Students
The high school program is a two year process with the goal of fostering and developing the faith of the youth of St. Timothy Parish and to confirm them in the Spirit to be mature adults in the Catholic faith.
