 Sacrament of Confirmation

 

Confirmation is the Sacrament of mature Christian commitment and a deepening of baptismal gifts.

It's one of the three Sacraments of Initiation for Catholics and most often associated with the gifts of the Holy Spirit.  

 

Confirmation preparation is a two year process beginning in 9th grade.

 

Parents are the key in their adolescent's Sacrament preparation and Faith Formation.

We encourage and support families to attend Mass on a regular basis.

Everything we do as Catholics flows from the Mass and back to it!

 

 Over two years, candidates will complete: 

 

Confirmation Retreat: 9th and 10th Grade candidates 

Location & Date TBA

Parents drive the adolescent to and from.

 

 Confirmation Mass: Tuesday, March 28, 2017 at 7:00pm     

Most Reverend Edward Michael Grosz, Auxiliary Bishop of Buffalo
