Why be Confirmed?
The sacrament of Confirmation welcomes us and deepens our belonging to the faith community. It also deepens our relationship to God, as Creator, Redeemer and Spirit. By deepening our relationship with God, it strengthens us as disciples to spread the word of God.
Anyone who is wishing to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation is expected to be an active member in the parish community, be at least 16 years old and a junior in high school. He/she must also participate in the preparation program, including educational, retreat and service components.
GROWTH IN FAITH
Confirmation preparation provides an opportunity for growth in knowledge, which hopefully lead to growth in faith also.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and future.
