Sacrament of Confirmation

The Sacrament of Confirmation unites us more closely with Christ and gives us the strength of the Holy Spirit -

to share our faith,

  • to live our faith by word and action
  • to be true witnesses of Christ.
  • The choice to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation should be made freely, willingly and with the intention to live a life of faith as part of the practicing parish faith community.
