The Sacrament of Confirmation

Confirmation brings to completion the grace received through baptism. By this sacrament, the baptized are more perfectly bound to the church and are enriched by the strength of the Holy Spirit.

Those who desire to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation should be participating in Faith Formation and Youth Ministry. Formal Confirmation Preparation takes place during the eighth grade year. If you are a teenager beyond eighth grade or an adult desiring Confirmation, please contact Joan Duncan.
