In the Diocese of Phoenix, the celebration of Confirmation takes place in third grade with the sacrament of First Communion. Children are prepared in class and receive the sacraments in late April or early May. Due to the current pandemic, our sacrament preparation program may need to be revised.

For children in the fourth or fifth grade who have received First Reconciliation and First Communion, but need to prepare for Confirmation, please check with the Catholic Education Office.

If you are an adult, 18 years or older, seeking Confirmation, please visit the RCIA page.

Things You Will Need For Confirmation & First Communion

Baptismal Certificate: A copy of the child's Baptismal Certificate is required at Registration. The Baptismal Church is the church of record for your child. We are required to notify the Baptismal Church after your child receives Confirmation. If your child was baptized at Corpus Christi, please let us know and we can look up the record.

Sacrament Book: Preparation for First Communion and Confirmation will begin on Sunday, January 9 from 9:40-10:40am (after the 8:30am Mass). Fee for the additional textbooks is $20.00. Please see the Sacrament Preparation Schedule under the RESOURCES tab on this page

Third Grade Retreat: Sunday, March 25, 2023 from 1:15-3:45pm

Parent Meeting: TDB – during class time.

Service Hours: We encourage five hours of family service. 

Banner: The Banner will mark the pew in which your family will be seated. The Banner Size is 14” x 16”, with an 18” string to go over the pew. The Banner should symbolize some aspect of Eucharist/Confirmation. First and Last Name must be on Banner. The Banner should be brought to the CE office prior to Communion Rehearsal night or, at the very latest, the evening of Rehearsal (See Dress Attire/Sacrament Mass Information form).

First Communion/Confirmation Date:  April 29 or April 22, 2023 pending approval and scheduling from the Diocese.  Rehearsal will be the Thursday before the First Communion/Confirmation mass.
