Confirmation    

Confirmation is a sacrament of initiation that is closely connected to baptism and Eucharist. It completes the sacrament of baptism, brings an increase and deepening of baptismal grace and more clearly shows forth the gifts of the Spirit received in baptism.  At the same time, the celebration of Confirmation links us more closely to Eucharist as a way to live out being a fully initiated Catholic.

Young people in 10th Grade or older are invited to participate in the sacramental preparation program for Confirmation. Our young people gather approximately twice a month, September-May for study and reflection.  Christian Service Learning  is done as a class and helps our youth to better understand the life of the parish and how each member is needed to carry out the mission of Jesus Christ.

The goal of the sacramental program for  Confirmation is to invite and enable young people to embrace a life-long journey of faith with God within a Catholic community. For information, please contact Mellisa Fox  252-8761 ext. 1411
