Confirmation Preparation

Many times students arrive at Boston College and they have not received the sacrament of Confirmation. Campus Ministry offers a program every spring semester which provides the opportunity for Catholic students to prepare together to receive this sacrament. Candidates meet for faith sharing and instruction in the Catholic faith. During the small group meetings through prayer and reflection on the Scriptures, students have an opportunity to deepen their spirituality and grow in their faith. 

The program is a series of six Sunday afternoon conversations that will culminate in the celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation. There are no tests to take or books to read (handouts, instead). The only things required is your willingness to take a close look at your Catholic faith and ponder what it means for you to be a Catholic in today's world. You also will be asked to provide Campus Ministry with a baptismal certificate.

Dates of "Conversations" - TBA

Confirmation: Friday, May 5, 2017 at 7 PM at St. Ignatius Parish on Lower Campus.

Fr Tony Penna coordinates the Confirmation Program.
