Confirmation, along with Baptism and Eucharist, constitute the sacraments of Christian initiation. So entwined are they that Confirmation is needed to complete the grace of Baptism. Through Confirmation the individual is embraced by the Holy Spirit, rooted more deeply in Jesus Christ and joined fully to the Church.
The sacrament of Confirmation, administered through Youth Ministry, is a two year program designed for high school students. Typically, students begin in 9th grade. However, students may begin as late as 11th grade.
To get started or for questions, please send an email or call the Youth Ministry office at 714-826-0460.
For adults who have received the sacraments of Baptism and Eucharist but not Confirmation, Saint Irenaeus offers an 11 week program in the Spring.
Adults who wish to become Catholic do so through the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults. The RCIA program provides instruction, guidance and support through this enriching journey.
To get started, please call the Parish Office.
