Confirmation Saint Name and Essay
As a candidate for the celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation you have two options concerning the choice of Confirmation name.
Option 1: Choose your present, baptismal name (your first name or middle name only if it is a Saint name). This shows the sacrament’s connection with the other sacraments of initiation into the Catholic Church: Baptism and First Eucharist. Choosing your Baptismal name demonstrates that you feel there has been a continual growth in your faith and that you now wish to make this formal through Confirmation.
Option 2: Choose a saint’s name that symbolizes a new beginning in your faith life and a connection to that particular saint. If you feel that you have not been particularly strong in your faith and are now making a renewed commitment to your faith, the taking of a new name symbolizes this commitment. This new name would be used after your present middle name and before your family name.

Candidates must attend the Confirmation Retreat in order to satisfy requirements for the program and the Archdiocese. If there is a major schedule conflict or illness, arrangements will need to be made for a make-up retreat with another parish.
