Confirmation

Confirmation at St. Jude celebrates the Holy Spirit working in the hearts of young people. The Confirmation process is a time of discernment for our teens to explore, challenge, grow and eventually take ownership of the Catholic Faith.  The process involves not only the teens, but the whole family and entire parish community. Confirmation is a two year process which starts in their Freshmen, Sophomore, or Junior year of high school.
