The Sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion and perfection of the graces of Baptism. The faithful are fully initiated into the Catholic Church once they have received the Sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation. Here at St. Peter’s, children begin their preparations for Confirmation in the seventh grade and are confirmed when they are in the eighth grade. These preparations take place either in a Catholic school or in St. Peter’s Sunday School. If your child does not attend a Catholic school, he or she should be enrolled in Sunday School of the year prior (7th grade) and the year of the sacrament (8th grade) in order to be prepared for Confirmation. Please visit the Sunday School section of this website for more information about registration.

Confirmation is an integral part of the Christian life, and we encourage anyone who has not received this sacrament to contact Julie Penndorf, director of religious education at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Each person being confirmed chooses a confirmation sponsor.  Confirmation sponsors must meet the following requirements:

  • must be a Roman Catholic, who is registered and participating member (via time, talent, and/or treasure) of a parish.  
  • must not be the father or mother of the one to be confirmed (Canon 874x1, 1, and 5)
  • must be at least sixteen years old.  (Canon 874, x1, 2)
  • must have received the three sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Holy Eucharist, and Confirmation. (Canon 874, x1, 2)
  • must worship regularly at Mass on Sundays and Holy Days and to give witness to faith in Jesus Christ by partaking in Holy Communion and by participating in the life of his/her parish.
  • must actively strive to live out commitment to Christ and to the Church by the sacrificial giving of time, talent and treasure, and by loving response to my neighbor. 
  • must realize that a sponsor assumes a great responsibility before God and the Church in becoming a Sponsor/Godparent.  Must promise to give support and guide the person being sponsored by prayers, and most especially, by his/her own Catholic example of his/her daily life.
