The sacrament of Confirmation has two primary effects:
The bond with the church is strengthened which first began in baptism
The person is enriched with an outpouring of the Holy Spirit and receives the spiritual gifts of the spirit.
Both of these effects perfect the grace that is first received in Baptism and helps us continue to live our baptismal call as disciples of Christ to the world.
PREPARATION FOR THE SACRAMENT OF CONFIRMATION
The High School Youth Confirmation program is a two year formation process. Students who have completed their 8th grade year in a parochial school, may count this towards their first year of formation. Our high school sacrament preparation classes include discussion, social justice and spiritual projects, a weekend retreat and fellowship. Confirmation candidates are given a vast array of opportunities to live, learn, and appreciate the Catholic faith.
