The Sacrament of Confirmation
At St. Christopher, this sacrament is offered to registered high school parishioners (9th grade and above). Generally following the academic year, students meet the first Sunday of each month for “large group” and the third Wednesday evening of the month for classroom work with a catechist. The first Saturday of December is Service Saturday (see sidebar). Candidates are invited to participate in one day-long retreat, where they delve deeper into the commitment of Confirmation and building the community. Students are typically interviewed in March to assess readiness and commitment to receive the Sacrament. Confirmation Mass is typically in March or April with a reception following.
Adults who have not yet been confirmed are invited to begin the process by contacting Sharon Armstrong at 440-331-6226 X 402.
