CONFIRMATION
Administrator, Friday 06 June 2014 - 18:09:57

The Sacrament of Confirmation is conferred by the anointing of holy oil on the forehead, while the words, "Be sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit" are spoken. Confirmation unites one more firmly to Jesus Christ. It increases the gifts of the Holy Spirit within one's heart. A special strength of the Holy Spirit is received to help one be able to spread and defend the faith by word and action as witnesses of Christ.


Young people preparing for the sacrament of Confirmation attend a series of classes and devote special time in prayer. They do research on the saints and become aware of the heroic actions of these holy people. They then choose a saint whose name they will bear as their Confirmation name and who will become their model. A weekend retreat is held which helps the young people build their relationship with Jesus to make receiving the sacrament more personal. They leave the retreat more aware of just how much they are loved and how Jesus was willing to suffer and die for them. They then spend a Holy Hour in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament to discern whether or not they are ready to be confirmed in their faith.
