WHAT IS CONFIRMATION?

The Sacrament of Confirmation completes the grace of Baptism by a special outpouring of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, which seal or “confirm” the Baptized in union with Christ and equip them to share their gifts, live, and give great witness to their faith as they build up the Kingdom of God. The entire Confirmation team is looking forward to an exciting year!

Confirmation is a Sacrament that gives each of the candidates many privileges in the church.  First, you will be considered a full member of the Church.  You will be able to be Godparents to children at Baptism and you can be a Sponsor to candidates at Confirmation (at age 16).  Along with the privileges come duties that you take upon yourself as a confirmed Catholic.  One of the main duties is to follow Christ through following the Commandments.  Your visible following of Christ can be seen in your participation of the Holy Mass every weekend and Holy Days of Obligation.  You will also demonstrate your following Christ by your service.  As a Parish it is our duty to see that you are given enough opportunities to worship and serve God.

Our mission is:

  • To support the faith formation that occurs at home
  • To foster enthusiasm for living the Catholic faith
  • To give witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ
  • To encourage family participation in the life of the Church

Our goals are:

  • To teach the Catholic faith
  • To encourage a commitment to Jesus Christ
  • To create a community spirit that inspires active participation in parish life
  • To encourage prayer which leads to a deeper relationship with a loving God
  • To assist parents in their role as primary instructors of our Catholic Faith
