Confirmation is the Sacrament in which one is enriched by the gift of the Holy Spirit and bound more perfectly to the Church. It strengthens us and obliges us to be witnesses to Christ by word and deed and to spread and defend the faith. It is the Sacrament in which one enters into full membership in the Catholic Church.
Confirmation perfects Baptismal grace; it is the sacrament which gives us the Holy Spirit in order to root us more deeply as children of God, incorporate us more firmly into Christ, strengthen our bond with the Church, associate us more closely with her mission, and help us to bear witness to the Christian faith in words accompanied by deeds.
Confirmation, like Baptism, imprints a spiritual mark or indelible character on the Christian soul; for this reason one can receive this sacrament only once.
Preparation to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation is open to those age 13 through adult who are baptized and active members of the Catholic Church through regular reception of the Eucharist and participation in the life of the parish.
Adults age 18 and up should call the office to request a meeting or conversation with Fr. Randy.
Youth age 13-17 will prepare to receive the sacrament through our faith formation program.
