Confirmation

Formal preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation begins in the 6th and 7th grade and is a two year program so students get confirmed as 7th and 8th graders. The program and its requirement are outlined at the beginning of the school year.  Following Confirmation students are invited to continue active participation in parish life thru youth group activities, community service, and retreats. Confirmation is a gift from the Holy Spirit given to those who complete the Confirmation preparation. If you are seeking confirmation, you must have received the sacraments of Baptism, First Communion and are in full accordance with the Catholic Faith.

"The prophets of the Old Testament foretold that God's Spirit would rest upon the Messiah to sustain his mission.  Their prophecy was fulfilled when Jesus the Messiah was conceived by the Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.  The Holy Spirit descended on Jesus on the occasion of his baptism by John.  Jesus' entire mission occurred in communion with the Spirit. Before he died, Jesus promised that the Spirit would be given to the Apostles and to the entire Church.  After his death, he was raised by the Father in the power of the Spirit.  Confirmation deepens our baptismal life that calls us to be missionary witnesses of Jesus Christ in our families, neighborhoods, society, and the world.  . . .  We receive the message of faith in a deeper and more intensive manner with great emphasis given to the person of Jesus Christ, who asked the Father to give the Holy Spirit to the Church for building up the community in loving service."
