Confirmation fills us with the Holy Spirit so that we may have a deeper relationship with God, as Creator, Redeemer, and Spirit. Through confirmation we are strengthened so that we may become disciples who bear witness to the Lord. Confirmation is also an initiation sacrament that welcomes us and deepens our belonging to the Church community. Thus we try to celebrate this sacrament within a Sunday Mass so that we may further welcome these members of the Body of Christ and offer them our support.
Ninth through twelfth graders who have not been confirmed whose families are registered members of the parish are eligible to receive confirmation. This preparation program is formed around a Day of Welcome and Commitment, eight small group sessions and an overnight retreat.
