We are so excited that you are getting ready to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation! This is an important sacrament to receive the Gifts of the Holy Spirit needed to follow Christ and build up His Church! Starting in summer, students in the 7th grade or older are invited to enroll in the preparation program for the Sacrament of Confirmation. Together, we'll have fun, discuss important topics in growing in our relationship with Jesus and bond as a community. The Confirmation Masses will be held in the Easter Season in spring.
Confirmation is the final step into full initiation into the life and mission of the church that was begun at Baptism! As an infant, the pouring of water in Baptism is followed by an anointing with oil. In the anointing, Sacred Chrism is used, prefiguring Confirmation, and the child is anointed “priest, prophet, and king.” By water we are reborn into the life of Christ and ‘divinized’ so to speak. By sacred oil we are anointed into the mission of Christ.
The mission of Christ, passed on to the Church and to each one of us as disciples of Christ, is to be witnesses to Christ as the Son of God and our Savior. “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all the nations…(Matthew 28:19)” We are called to be God’s hands and feet in the world, working with Christ to bring about the Kingdom on Earth.
In the Sacrament of Confirmation, the Holy Spirit equips us with His gifts to build up the Church, and with the fruit of the Holy Spirit, to make us effective in our witness.
