Confirmation

Confirmation

“Confirmation perfects Baptismal grace; it is the sacrament which gives the Holy Spirit in order to root us more deeply in the divine filiation, incorporate us more firmly into Christ, strengthen our bond with the Church, associate us more closely with her mission, and help us bear witness to the Christian faith in words accompanied by deeds.” (CCC 1316)

“Bound more intimately to the Church by the sacrament of confirmation, [the baptized] are endowed by the Holy Spirit with special strength; hence they are more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith both by word and by deed as true witnesses of Christ.” Lumen Gentium 

Through the Sacrament of Confirmation we renew our baptismal promises and commit to living a life of maturity in the Christian faith.

The youth in our parish participate in a Confirmation preparation process through the Religious Education Program. Questions about this process should be directed to Shannon Cassidy, the Lifelong Faith Formation Coordinator, at scassidycgs@gmail.com.
