Confirmation is the final Sacrament of Christian Initiation that connects you to Jesus Christ. This began with Baptism and continues through participation in the Eucharist.

The Newman Community provides many opportunities to develop this Christian connection for Confirmation. If you are a university or college student who needs to complete Confirmation preparation and receive the Sacrament, we invite you to join the Newman Center Confirmation Preparation Process.  High School Seniors who are registered members of the Newman Center are also given consideration to participate.

Sessions are held on Tuesdays at 7PM for an eight week period with mandatory attendance at all sessions.  Fall 2023 dates will be announced soon, likely starting September
