Visitation - a Catholic Community



The Sacrament of Confirmation can be approached in three ways:

  • The first, and most common, is for sophomores in high school. After a semester of preparation, which includes a retreat, the candidates are confirmed by Bishop Johnston in a ceremony at Visitation Church in the spring.

  • Confirmation preparation is also offered to adult practicing Catholics who are 21 or older. These are people who have been Catholic all their life but missed this Sacrament along the way. Each year, the Bishop celebrates the Sacrament in June at the Cathedral. Preparation takes place at Visitation.

  • Individuals who are not practicing Catholics should look at the Becoming Catholic - RCIA section of this website for more information.
