Confirmation, together with Baptism and Eucharist, form the Sacraments of Initiation that are all intimately connected. In the Sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized person is "sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit" and is strengthened for service to the Body of Christ.
Catholics believe the Sacrament of Confirmation is the supernatural equivalent of the growth process on the natural level. It builds on what was begun in Baptism and what was nourished in Holy Eucharist. It completes the process of initiation into the Christian community, and it matures the soul for the work ahead.
Through the Sacrament of Confirmation, our young people affirm the promises made by their parents when they were baptized as infants.
This sacrament is conferred by the bishop bi-annually in our parish. We prepare our young people for this Sacrament beginning in September of their 8th grade year in the Faith Formation class. Contact our DRE, Janet Rubino, if you have questions.
