Confirmation

Sacramental Preparation for Confirmation

CONFIRMATION FOR YOUTH [Adult Confirmation, Keep Scrolling]

 

Classes begin each October. Call our Faith Formation Office (813) 689-9101 if you believe your child is eligible but you did not receive a letter with registration instructions.

Parents play an integral and primary role in sacramental instruction of their children. When a parent presents their child for baptism, they acknowledge their role in raising their child in the Catholic faith, someday becoming a full participant in the other sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist, and Confirmation.  Nativity is here to assist you in the fulfillment of that role.  At our parish, we structure Confirmation preparation so that you, as parent, and your child's sponsor may directly participate in the Confirmation program.

Important information about the Process

  • When? - Preparation sessions are held on Sunday afternoons.
  • Where? - Sessions are typically held in the Church, Social Hall, and Youth Center's Life Lounge.
  • Who is involved? - Youth seeking Confirmation along with parents and sponsors, who should attend certain sessions during the process.
