Confirmation enrollment will begin in September and an Orientation Meeting will be held on Sept. 23rd from 1:30-2:45 in the St. Augustine Room. Candidates are welcome to start the Confirmation formation process beginning their freshman year of High School through their junior year. Confirmation formation is a two year process. Our dedicated catechists are excited to share their faith with you and walk with you on this beautiful journey to full participation in our Church's mission of evangelization.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church introduces the Sacrament of Confirmation with these words:
1285 Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the "sacraments of Christian initiation," whose unity must be safeguarded. It must be explained to the faithful that the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace.For "by the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed."
