"And I say to you, that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it." - Matthew 16:18

Confirmation

Confirmation

Are you ready to make a commitment to your faith?

St. Peter’s guidelines recommend that your teen is ready to prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation if the following have been met:

  • Your teen has received the Sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation and Eucharist.

  • Your teen has completed at least nine years of faith formation (Parish or Catholic School) and is currently enrolled in a faith formation program (Parish or Catholic School) for the current school year.

  • It is also expected that your family will be attending Mass at St. Peter Parish (either St. Peter or St. Bernard Worship Site) on regular basis. Celebrating liturgy together is at the center of our Catholic faith, and is the greatest expression of our beliefs.

  • Note: If your teen has missed one or more years of formation between Grades 4-9, please contact the Faith Formation Office at 716-754-2812 to discuss what would be necessary to get your teen ready to enter preparation for Confirmation.
