Serving the Catholic Community of Castro Valley

Confirmation: Grades 9th to 12th

Welcome To Confirmation!

The Sacrament of Confirmation is one of the three initiation sacraments. It confirms a person’s Baptism and a person’s desire to continue on their journey of faith. All high school students who are interested in completing their initiation must participate in youth ministry and complete the required steps. The Confirmation formation process at OLG follows the Oakland Diocesan guidelines. In order to comply with these guidelines, our process takes 2 years to complete.

  • $120 for the 1st child
  • $60 for each additional sibling in the same household

In-person Registration & Payment (check or cash) is also available at the Parish Office.

If you need financial assistance, please call the Parish Office at 510-537-0806.

Confirmation at OLG is guided by our mission to live our faith grounded in Jesus Christ by growing in our personal faith life through prayer and continuing Catholic faith formation for people of all ages and by encouraging youth and young adults to participate in the mission and ministries of OLG. 

Passing on your faith is one of the most precious gifts you can give your children. We are here to help you!
