Confirmation

 

Through the Sacrament of Confirmation, the Holy Spirit strengthens the graces received at Baptism, provides more of them, and seals them all inside our soul – like a carefully wrapped present! This brings us closer to Christ and better prepares us to face the daily challenges of Christian life.  At Confirmation, we accept God’s mission to bring the Good News to all people and we receive courage and the power of the Holy Spirit, as the early disciples did at Pentecost.

Preparation to Confirm our faith in Jesus Christ begins at Baptism. Within the Family Faith Formation program, preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation takes place over a two-year period. Specific materials will be provided families beginning in seventh grade to learn about the many gifts, fruits and power of the Holy Spirit. The Sacrament of Confirmation is conferred at the beginning of freshman year.
