“…so that they may all be one, as you Father, are
in me and I in you, that they also may be in us…” John
Confirmation is a sacrament that confirms a member to the Catholic
Church. Like Baptism and Eucharist, it is a Sacrament of Initiation
for Catholics and a Sacrament of faith in God's fidelity to us.
The Catechism describes Confirmation as a deepening of baptismal
gifts. It says that the sacrament roots us more deeply in our identity
as God's children; unites us more firmly with Christ; increases
in us the gifts of the Holy Spirit; binds us more closely to the
Church; and gives us special strength to bear witness to our faith.
The Bishop presides at this sacrament each year, usually during
the month of May. For information and preparation requirements,
please call Kathy Sweeney in the Religious Education Office at 744-9515.
A process for those in
10th Grade and older to prepare to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation
on Pentecost Sunday. preparation begins right after the Easter Celebration.
