Confirmation is the third of the three sacraments of initiation into the Catholic Church, the other two of which are Baptism and First Holy Communion. It is through these sacraments that we become full members of the Church, the Body of Christ.

According to the United States Catholic Catechism for Adults, “In the Sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized person is ‘sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit’ and is strengthened for service to the Body of Christ.”

If you would like your teen to celebrate Confirmation at Our Lady of the Snows, please contact Milagros Ortega at or 208-622-3432 to enroll them in our Youth Discipleship Formation & Sacramental Preparation Program. Classes begin mid September and continue through the end of April. Adults who would like to be confirmed will need to make special arrangements with our priest for preparation.
