Confirmation 2018 Survey-Who is Jesus?

Confirmation

 

Confirmation is a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit which brings an increase and deepening of baptismal grace - it seals our baptism.

Through Confirmation we are rooted more deeply to God the Father and united more firmly to Christ. The gifts of the Holy Spirit are increased within us, and our bond with the Church becomes more perfect. We also receive the special strength of the Holy Spirit to spread and defend the faith in our words and actions. In the world today all of us, including our children, need all the strength we can get to do good and avoid the distractions and temptations that can draw us away from God.

Confirmation preparation is a two consecutive year process for students starting in 7th grade or above.  All youth need to be baptized in the Catholic Church (a copy of the baptismal certificate is needed) and have celebrated the sacraments of 1st Reconciliation and 1st Eucharist in order to enroll in this preparation.

Encountering Christ

When speaking to the youth in Brazil, Pope Francis said:

"Father, are you asking us all to pray? I ask you all … but reply in the silence of your heart, not aloud: do I pray? Do I speak with Jesus, or am I frightened of silence? Do I allow the Holy Spirit to speak in my heart? Do I ask Jesus: what do you want me to do, what do you want from my life? This is training. Ask Jesus, speak to Jesus, and if you make a mistake in your life, if you should fall, if you should do something wrong, don’t be afraid. Jesus, look at what I have done, what must I now do? Speak continually with Jesus, in the good times and in the bad, when you do right, and when you do wrong. Do not fear him! This is prayer. And through this, you train yourselves in dialogue with Jesus, in this path of being missionary disciples. By the sacraments, which make his life grow within us and conform us to Christ. By loving one another, learning to listen, to understand, to forgive, to be accepting and to help others, everybody, with no one excluded or ostracized."
