Confirmation

“He indeed died for all, so that those who might live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.” – 2 Corinthians 6:15

Confirmation is the sacrament that celebrates the work of the Spirit in our lives. It celebrates the strengthening of our own spirits and is the prayer of the Church that we might live the life of the Spirit courageously for the service of the community. Confirmation calls us to live in the Spirit in such a way that we give clear, external evidence of being a Christian.

We as a community cluster are transitioning our students from Confirmation which previously took place in 8th grade, but will begin taking place in the 10th grade. This will aid them in their journey through Confirmation and provide ample time to prepare for the Blessed Sacrament. Preparing for Confirmation is an important step, so we are ensuring that students have ample time to discover more about the Church, Sacraments and their personal Faith in the process.

This sacrament provides strength to the candidates in their faith and confirms the graces and Gifts of the Holy Spirit which each candidate received through their initial Baptism.
