Confirmation is one of the three sacraments which makes an individual a full member of the Catholic Church.
Confirmation is the completion of Baptism. It serves to seal the baptism, affirming the baptismal promises of the adult catholic and conferring the gifts of the Holy Spirit, thus empowering the individual to go forth and share the gospel of Christ, much the way the apostles were sent forth after Pentecost.
Adult Confirmation (18 and over)
preparation is offered once a year. The session is six months long and meets on Tuesday nights at 7:00-9:00pm in the Senior Hospitality Center. The next session is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2014. To register for Adult Confirmation Preparation, please contact the church office at (510) 581-2570.
All High School students
who are currently participating in a catechetical or faith formation process are eligible to begin Confirmation preparation. Confirmation preparation is a two year program and begins in the fall of each year. If your child is not currently attending Catholic School nor enrolled in a high school faith formation program, the first step toward Confirmation will be enrolling them in the All Saints’ Youth Ministry Program. For more information or to register for the Youth Ministry Program or Confirmation, please contact Tess Miciano at
or (510) 581-2570 x121.
