Confirmation for High School Age Children:

The Diocese of Venice has a religious education program which emphasizes the importance of the Sacrament of Confirmation with a two-year process (during grades 9-10). The young men and women go through a process where they complete one phase of their faith journey and prepare to begin the next phase as full Christians who are called to be more and reflect the love and goodness of Christ in their heart and soul.

Confirmation for Adults:  There is an additional program called the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA), which not only assists adults in receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation, but other Sacraments they might be missing, thus allowing them to be in full Communion with the Church.  For more information, please contact Mrs. Mary Kay Arroyo, Director of Adult Faith Formation ( or 941-756-3732)
