Confirmation 2016-2017 Schedule

Confirmation is a sacrament of initiation in which a baptized Catholic, through prayers, imposition of hands and the anointing with chrism, receives a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit that completes baptismal grace.  The Sacrament of Confirmation impresses a character, and by it the baptized, continuing on the path of Christian initiation, are enriched by the gifts of the Holy Spirit and bound more perfectly to the Church.  It strengthens them and obliges them more firmly to be witnesses to Christ by word and deed and to spread and defend the faith.

The Confirmation program helps the student prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation through the evangelizing and catechizing opportunities offered to them in the program.  With the help of parents, sponsors, and program coordinators, the Confirmation candidates are prepared to receive the sacrament.
