Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the “sacraments of Christian initiation,” whose unity must be safeguarded. It must be explained to the faithful that the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. For “by the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.”
If your child is in 10th grade or higher and has not received the Sacrament of Confirmation but is interested in doing so, please contact Edmund Mitchell as soon as possible to discuss options.
Just a reminder that our Confirmation program is integrated into regular high school catechesis. We meet weekly during High School Young Church on Sunday nights from 6-8pm. 10 weeks out of the year there will be Confirmation specific small groups that will break out of the usual High School Young Church programming. There is also an overnight three-day retreat in January for those preparing for confirmation.
