The Church believes and testifies that “Confirmation perfects Baptismal grace; it is the sacrament which gives the Holy Spirit in order to root us more deeply in the divine filiation, incorporate us more firmly into Christ, strengthen our bond with the Church, associate us more closely with her mission, and help us bear witness to the Christian faith in words accompanied by deeds” (CCC# 1316).
For Catholics, Confirmation provides a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit, which helps the confirmed Catholics witness to Christ and live a mature Christian life.
If you have a youth in need of receiving Confirmation, please register with the Religious Education office. The registration forms for upcoming school years are available each year in July.
