Confirmation

Church of St. Aidan of Williston Park, New York


Typically students receive the Sacrament of Confirmation during the fall of 9th grade. We average slightly more than 200 students per year. As part of their preparation for Confirmation we ask our 7th and 8th grade students to participate in some form of community service. These students perform approximately 3,000 volunteer hours in service to the parish and community annually.


ADULT CONFIRMATION
Often enough it happens that an adult has not been confirmed and wishes to receive the sacrament. We can readily accommodate you. Just call the Rectory and arrangements will be made for you to receive appropriate instruction. In our Diocese of Rockville Centre adults are confirmed at Pentecost because of a generous faculty given by our bishop to confirm on that day. In other cases the priest may simply apply to the bishop for a faculty to confirm and it is readily given.
