Confirmation

Confirmation is the completion of baptism, the giving of the full power of a Christian. "Confirmation" means a strengthening -- this sacrament strengthens and increases what we receive at baptism, particularly the power of bearing witness to Christ. To emphasize this, the ceremony of confirmation includes a renewal of our baptismal promises. We now become full-fledged members of the Church, lay apostles in the fullest sense.  Confirmation is scheduled in a rotating process.  (See the religious formation calendar.)  The bishop normally confirms these young people in a special ceremony. Adults who are not confirmed can be confirmed when the Bishop comes or at the Easter Vigil.

Please call the Church office if you need to be confirmed.
