Confirmation

“…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 17:21

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.
