The Sacrament of

 

 

 

Confirmation

             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

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PARENTS & CAREGIVERS:

 

UPDATE APRIL 13th 2022:

The following letter with final instructions for the sacrament of Confirmation was sent via email to all who had a child registered to receive the sacrament. Please advise the parish office if you did not receive the email.

Final Instructions 2022

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.
