Confirmation enriches the baptized with the strength of the Holy Spirit so that they can better witness to Christin word and deed (Catechism of the Catholic Church [CCC], no. 1285).
At St. Stephen Confirmation preparation for children and teens is normally handled through our Religious Education programs. For adults or those interested in becoming Catholic the normal path is through RCIA. Please call the parish center (847) 824-2026 for further information.
