Welcome to Immaculate Conceptions 2021/2022 Confirmation Preparation.   Our program is a 2- year program which begins in the 7th Grade and continues through the 8th Grade.  We are very excited to be using the ChosenYour Journey Toward Confirmation Program.  The goal of the program is to offer your child a powerful, life changing experience as he or she prepares to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.

It is our hope that Chosen will offer your child a thorough knowledge and understanding of the Catholic Faith.  The program has been carefully designed to address and answer candidates’ fundamental questions about life, and to challenge him or her to embrace a life of faith.

Choosing a sponsor: Sponsors are "spiritual parents who instruct spiritual children in Christian living." (St. John Chrysostom) A Sponsor should be a fully initiated and practicing Catholic, at least sixteen years of age, not bound by any canonical penalty, in a valid marriage if married, and not the father or mother of the candidate.​​

  • If the sponsor is an ICC parishioner, you need only to make us aware of the choice on or before Feburary 5, 2022
  • Sponsors outside of ICC should contact their home parishes for a certificate, and turn it in the PSR office on or before February 5th, 2022
  • Eighth grade candidates and their sponsors are required to attend practice for Confirmation on Wednesday, April 27, 2022 at 6 p.m.

Thank you for allowing us to come along on your teens journey to Confirmation!

Thank you and be assured of my prayers.

"Now when the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God, they sent them Peter and John, who went down and prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Spirit, for it had not yet fallen upon any of them; they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then they laid hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit." Acts 8:14-17
