The Sacrament of Confirmation is one of the three sacraments of initiation. Confirmation is a Catholic Sacrament of mature Christian commitment and a deepening of baptismal gifts. Confirmation perfects our baptism and brings us the graces of the Holy Spirit that were granted to the Apostles on Pentecost Sunday. It is most often associated with the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

The Sacrament of Confirmation completes the sacrament of Baptism. Baptism is the sacrament of re-birth to a new and supernatural life, Confirmation is the sacrament of maturity. Confirmation strengthens the Holy Spirit within us and is a sacrament of empowerment. It gives the strength to follow Jesus and to become involved in the mission which Jesus left to the Church.

Confirmation preparation is a time of more intense commitment to the faith.  More is expected of the student as he/she prepares to receive the Sacrament. The program involves parent meetings, updating for parents, and celebrations which gradually introduce children to this Sacrament. Detailed information is given at parent meetings.
