What is Confirmation?
The Confirmation program is a two-year process in which young Catholics prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation in which the teens prepare to be initiated into the church as adults.
This is a time for them to make a decision about their faith.
This program is for teenagers in high school only. Registration takes place the summer before classes begin and this may be done through the
Parish Office or online.
The SACRAMENT OF CONFIRMATION
The sacraments create an intimate connection with God. Three sacraments complete our initiation into the Catholic faith: Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation. In Baptism, we are born the intimate connection. The connection is nourished and sustained with the Eucharist. In Confirmation, our baptismal grace and bond with the Church is strengthened. In the final sacrament of initiation into the
Catholic faith, the oil of chrism seals us with the Gifts of the Holy Spirit forever; an indelible mark that cannot be repeated. If you would like more detailed information regarding the Sacrament of Confirmation, please contact the Director of Youth Ministry and Confirmation.
