”Confirmation perfects Baptismal grace; it is the sacrament which gives the Holy Spirit. ...To incorporate us more firmly into Christ, strengthen our bond with the Church, associate us more closely with her mission, and help us bear witness to the Christian faith in words accompanied by deeds.” (Catechism #1316)
Confirmation is a one-year formal program, offered every other year, for seventh and eighth grade students. Preparation classes are held Sunday mornings after 9:00am Mass. Confirmation is conferred by the Bishop at The Cathedral, typically held in spring.
