Enriched With the Strength of the Holy Spirit
“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.”
— Catechism of the Catholic Church #1285
Children in our schools and Religious Education program receive the sacrament of Confirmation in 8th grade after 2 years of sacramental preparation. If you would like your child to be confirmed, please contact our Coordinator of Religious Education.
Adults who have been baptized but not Confirmed should check out our R.C.I.A. program.
