Our goals in preparing the student to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation include:
…Affirming the gift of the Baptism as the root call to living a Gospel life.
…Celebrating the presence of the Holy Spirit in their life.
…Renewing their commitment to Jesus.
…Understanding the call of the Holy Spirit to affirm and confirm faith as a personal response to God’s love.
…Understanding and celebrating the Gifts of the Holy Spirit and knowing how that is a call to live as a disciple of Jesus Christ.
Participants for Confirmation are usually between the ages of 12-15. This program will run from January through April and consists of five 1 1/2 sessions. Parents are expected to attend the lessons with their child. Confirmation Sponsors are also encouraged to participate in the program.
Parents wishing to enroll their child in the Confirmation Preparation Program should contact the Parish office by October 1, 2012.
