Confirmation: How You Completed Your Initiation?
The Sacrament of Confirmation marks the completion of baptismal grace.
“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. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.” (Lumen Gentium 11) “[Confirmation] imprints on the soul an indelible spiritual mark . . . clothing [us] with power from on high so that we may be [Jesus’] witnesses.” (CCC 1304)
Are you an adult who has not yet received this important sacrament?
It’s time to step forward and complete your initiation into the Catholic Church. We will begin a series of preparation sessions for this sacrament on Wednesdays in May. If you are interested in participating or have questions, contact Susan in the Faith Formation Office (
