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. If you would like more information than is provided here, you may contact Susan Spara at firstname.lastname@example.org.
