What is Confirmation?
Confirmation is the Sacrament of Initiation in which a baptized Catholic receives a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit that completes Baptismal grace. This sacrament impresses a character in the baptized person, is enriched by the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and bound more perfectly to the Church. It deepens our baptismal life that calls to be witnesses of Jesus Christ in our families, society, and the world.
"In the Sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized person is
sealed with the Holy Spirit
and is strengthen for service in the Body of Christ." (USCCB)
Students in grades 8th – 10th grade seeking to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation must be enrolled in our religious education program and attend a 2-year Catechesis Formation program that will prepare them adequately to receive this sacrament. Classes run from September thru April and are held on Sundays from 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm.
In conjunction with the Confirmation formation program, students are strongly encouraged to participate in the Youth Group as a way to enrich their formation experience. See Youth Ministry for additional information.
