The Sacrament of Confirmation

Baptism, the Eucharist, and the Sacrament of Confirmation are the sacraments of Christian initiation.

By the sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit.  They are true witnesses of Christ who spread and defend the faith by word and deed. (CCC1285)

As fully initiated members of the Church, they are expected to continue to deepen their relationship with Christ, to continue to serve His Church, and to lead others to Jesus Christ. Confirmed individuals are not “graduating” from religious education.

Beginning in year 2019, Parish policy requires that individuals be in at least 7th grade and have two years of immediate preparation in the faith.

Students who choose to be candidates for Confirmation must be enrolled at our Parish School, attend the Parish Religious Education Program, or be home-schooled for their academic education. Parents, as primary educators of their children, are also required to attend one meeting, or be enrolled in the Parent Catechesis, and oversee their children’s work.

2018 Sacrament of Confirmation at St. Francis of Assisi will be held Thursday, March 22, 2018 and celebrated by
Bishop Michael J. Fitzgerald
