The Sacrament of
Confirmation is the sacrament by which Catholics receive a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Through Confirmation, the Holy Spirit gives them the increased ability to practice their Catholic faith in every aspect of their lives and to witness Christ in every situation.
The effects of Confirmation are as follows:
An increased portion of the gifts of the Holy Spirit: wisdom, knowledge, right judgment, understanding, courage, piety, and fear of the Lord
A deepening and strengthening of the grace received at Baptism, which is considered the presence of God in the soul
A more intimate relationship with Jesus Christ
A closer bond with the Catholic Church
The ability to take a greater, more mature role in the Church's mission of living the Christian faith daily and witnessing to Christ everywhere
A special mark, or character, on the soul that can never be erased
Registration for Confirmation is now closed. If you have yet to register your child and wish to do so please contact Arden Ouellette at the parish office.
Please note that the sacrament will be celebrated by date, not organized by school. Parents will have an opportunity to book a date for their child to receive the sacrament using the parish online booking system starting January 24th @ 12pm and will remain open until January 31st @ 12pm.
If your child is registered and you do not have the handouts given at time of registration, or the recap notes of the Zoom Meeting held Nov. 18th, please contact Arden Ouellette at the parish office to ensure your correct email address is on file.
We strongly encourage all parents to bring their children to weekly mass as it is an important part of their faith formation. Children must understand the mass in order to understand what it means to take receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit and to to be able to fully participate in the mass. Additionally, home preparation with prayer, bible stories and discussion along with school based religion curriculum will combine to inform and prepare children for these special sacraments.
