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.
Registrations have now ended for 2017-18.
We will reopen registrations in June and July 2018 for 2018-19 Faith Formation year.
