The sacrament of confirmation completes the sacrament of baptism. If baptism is the sacrament of re-birth to a new and supernatural life, confirmation is the sacrament of maturity and coming of age. The real confession of Christ consists in this: ‘that the whole man submits himself to Truth, in the judgment of his understanding, in the submission of his will and in the consecration of his whole power of love . . . To do this, poor-spirited man is only able when he has been confirmed by God’s grace.’
This confirmation in the power of the Holy Spirit leading to a firm profession of faith has always been the particular effect which Catholic tradition has ascribed to the sacrament. It is this effect which complements and completes that of baptism. usccb.org

St. Francis is currently using a new Confirmation program called CHOSEN. It is up-to-date, fun, engaging and insightful program that will help you develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and continue to learn and appreciate the beauty and the truth of our Catholic faith. If you are incoming freshman or a sophomore beginning your second year of Confirmation preparation or in any grade in high school and have not yet been confirmed CHOSEN is for you! CHOSEN is not a classroom experience but is an interactive process using new media, small group discussions and prayer. We encourage you and your parents to check out confirmationstudy.com for more information about this amazing program.
