Confirmation

Confirmation

The Sacrament of Confirmation deepens and strengthens a person in his/her Baptismal commitment and unites a person more closely to Christ.  The Sacrament of Confirmation has two effects namely, that the person’s bond with the Church is strengthened and that one is enriched by an outpouring of the gifts of the Holy Spirit.  In order to be confirmed, one must wish to be confirmed and be a willing witness for Christ.  Following a period of preparation, the Sacrament of Confirmation is administered by the bishop at a special Mass.   

High school students who wish to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation should be enrolled in the Faith Formation Program.  Adults who have not been confirmed should contact Fr. John at the parish office at 823-1090.
