Confirmation ~ Confirmación


***Our normal program is temporarily suspended due to the coronavirus quarantine***
***Please visit our Pandemic Youth Ministry page for current program details***

Check us out on FacebookInstagram, and YouTube.


Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation happens during a student’s sophomore year in high school in the Diocese of Richmond. A student wishing to be Confirmed must be enrolled in a faith formation program, which at Incarnation is our High School Youth Group (or our FIRE program). The student must also participate in the Confirmation preparation curriculum, which is separate and distinct from High School Youth Group (see details below).
