Confirmation is one of the three Sacraments of Christian Initiation, along with Baptism and Eucharist. Confirmation involves the "sealing" and strengthening of the Holy Spirit, whose gifts make us more like Christ.
In the Archdiocese of Seattle, those baptized in infancy must be at least 16 years of age by the date of Confirmation to be confirmed. Proximate preparation for Confirmation begins in the middle-school and early high-school years through participation in parish youth programs, such as The Edge and ANCHOR. Enrollment and participation in ANCHOR is required for at least one year prior to beginning Confirmation classes. Immediate preparation for Confirmation begins in the fall with the Rite of Confirmation celebrated in February. In addition to Confirmation classes and ANCHOR activities, the preparation process includes retreats and service opportunities. For further information, email email@example.com.
