"Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the 'sacraments of Christian initiation,' whose unity must be safeguarded. It must be explained to the faithful that the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. For by the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed." (CCC 1285)

The Sacrament of Confirmation is a two-year process at the Roman Catholic Community of Terryville. Students who have received religious instruction in grades 1-8, either through Catholic School or a parish Religious Education Program are eligible to begin their preparation at the beginning of 9th grade. Since preparation for Confirmation does not occur at any Catholic High School, students are prepared in their own parish. More information can be found on our Youth Ministry Confirmation Program page.  If you or your child is interested in being Confirmed-please contact our Confirmation Program Leaders at 860-583-4697 x303 or
