"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."
Confirmation is offered to all Catholic youth currently in the 10th grade and older. Preparation includes small group sessions, service projects, &/or prayer services. Each is a chance to experience our faith through the awesome power of the Holy Spirit and allow our youth to express their love for Christ by sharing their faith in Parish and the community.
