Sacrament of ConfirmationDove

Religious education in the Catholic schools for the Sacrament of Confirmation occurs in Grade 6. Reception of the Sacraments should take place in the parish to which you belong and regularly attend Mass.

Here is the current Sacrament Calendar.


You MUST register your child at the church so your child may receive this Sacrament.

Baptismal certificates (copies) are needed for each candidate not baptized at St. John Bosco Parish. If there are problems with the certificate or if your child is not baptized Catholic, please bring it to our attention.
