Confirmation is the perfection of baptismal grace. We receive the Holy Spirit in a unique way, deepening the graces we received at baptism and calling us to participate in the apostolic mission of the Church. The gift of the Holy Spirit received in the Sacrament of Confirmation is crucial to our lives because it is a relationship with the Holy Spirit that helps us to live out our Christian calling.
The Confirmation program walks with candidates in their faith journey, helping them answer big questions of faith, encounter Jesus in the Sacraments and create a relationship with Jesus Christ. Our Confirmation students will be encouraged on their faith journey with small group discussions, as well as inviting their sponsors and parents to walk the journey of Confirmation with them.
The curriculum used for Confirmation is called Purpose. Purpose is a transformative approach to confirmation and provides a foundational and evangelistic approach while accompanying the teens on their journey of becoming disciples. The curriculum addresses three big questions, "Why believe in God?", "Why trust Jesus?" and "Why be a part of the Church?"
