A religious confirmation is an important step in the celebrant’s commitment to their faith. It’s also a time to bring family, friends, and fellow parishioners together to support them during this rite of passage. Paperless Post can help make the planning process easier with our unique online confirmation invitations and intuitive tools.

What is confirmation?

Confirmation is a Catholic rite of passage. At a baptism, parents welcome the child into the church and promise to raise them within Christian ideals. At a confirmation, the individual makes the vows themselves and they become a full-fledged member of the religious community.

Who should you invite to a confirmation celebration?

Immediate family and godparents should be in attendance. Relatives and close friends are also welcome if space allows.

The confirmation ceremony can be an individual service with a tight-knit group of people, but many congregations opt to host it during Sunday service. If you and your priest are conducting a private ceremony, you’ll have more leeway on the number of guests you can invite. If the individual is getting confirmed at a regular Sunday service, verify with your church beforehand whether they have specific rules regarding the confirmation service.

Confirmation invitation wording

The wording on your confirmation invitation should be semi-formal to emphasize the importance of this special occasion. For example, “We warmly welcome you to [Name]’s confirmation service to celebrate strengthening their relationship with God” or, “We request the pleasure of your appearance during this momentous occasion of [Name]’s confirmation.” For straightforward wording, go with something simple like “Please join us to worship, pray, and celebrate [Name]’s confirmation on [date] at [location].”

Regardless of how you word it, your confirmation invitation should state the parishioner's name, date and time of the service, and RSVP information.

Confirmation invitation ideas

If it’s your first time planning a confirmation or you’re not quite sure where to begin, take a look at our religious invitations to see which designs catch your eye.

Remember that the style of your confirmation invitation should highlight the parishioner’s personality in some way. If you’re planning a confirmation for your child, you can even involve them by letting them choose an online invitation template.

If you prefer traditional designs, go for spiritual motifs like a cross surrounded by soft florals. For a more contemporary style, try abstract geometric designs or watercolor backgrounds. Narrow down your search by using our filters for color, designer, price, and popularity.

Don't forget about all the unique ways you can customize your design once you’ve selected it. Personalize your confirmation invitation with our online tools to create your one-of-a-kind design. Use Blocks to lay out all the particulars of the service and the reception, if you’re having one. Include directions and other important details without cluttering up your invitation.
