Confirmation is one of the
three Sacraments of Initiation, through which an individual becomes more closely bonded with Christ and the Church.
Through this sacrament, the Gifts of the Holy Spirit are deepened and strengthened in the person, to empower the person to live as a true disciple of Christ.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church states:
Recall then that you have received the spiritual seal, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of right judgment and courage, the spirit of knowledge and reverence, the Spirit of holy fear in God's presence. Guard what you have received'. God the Father has marked you with his sign; Christ the Lord has confirmed you and has placed his pledge, the Spirit, in your heart.
Here at Saint John Paul II Parish, Confirmation takes place in the fall, as well as the Easter Vigil with our adults enrolled in R.C.I.A.
