Confirmation


The sacrament of confirmation completes the sacrament of baptism. If baptism is the sacrament of re-birth to a new and supernatural life, confirmation is the sacrament of maturity and coming of age.

In confirmation the power of the Holy Spirit leads us to a firm profession of faith which complements the Sacrament of baptism.

THE CHURCH TEACHES
Confirmation is a true sacrament instituted by Christ and different from baptism. It is administered by laying-on of hands and anointing with chrism accompanied by prayer. The chrism is blessed by the bishop who administers the sacrament. All baptized persons can and should be confirmed. The effect of the sacrament of confirmation is to give strength in faith and to impress an indelible character.

Sacramental Preparation for Confirmation
The sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated at the end of the sophomore year in our parish. Sacramental preparation begins in the Freshman year and enrollment in Faith Formation is required during both years of this two-year preparation period.
