What is Confirmation?

Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the sacraments of Christian initiation. “Confirmation brings an increase and deepening of baptismal grace. It roots us more deeply in the divine filiation which makes us cry, "Abba! Father!" It unites us more firmly to Christ. It increases the gifts of the Holy Spirit in us. It renders our bond with the Church more perfect. It gives us a special strength of the Holy Spirit to spread and defend the faith by word and action as true witnesses of Christ, to confess the name of Christ boldly, and never to be ashamed of the Cross.” 


Preparation programs for Confirmation are available if your daughter / son has been baptized and has celebrated the Sacraments of First Penance and First Communion.  Contact the Director of Faith Formation at Blessed Sacrament Church (315.437.3394 or if additional sacramental preparation information is needed in order to participate in the Confirmation program.

Weekly Confirmation Candidate Spotlights:

This week we begin spotlights on our second year Confirmation Candidates as we approach their Confirmation date of May 19, 2024.


Confirmation Candidate MADELYN was named after Saint Madeleine-Sophie Barat who was known for providing equal education for all no matter their social and economic status. Madelyn celebrated her sacraments at Blessed Sacrament Church and notes that the gift of knowledge has significant meaning in her life. She focuses in Confirmation on growing her relationship with Christ and the decisions she will have to make in life.


Confirmation Candidate AVERY notes his focus on the gift of knowledge in remembering all that he has learned about Jesus and in his preparation for Confirmation. He wants to celebrate Confirmation to be seen as an adult in the church and strengthen his relationship with God. He feels God's presence during adoration and in his heart.
