The disciples were filled with joy when they saw the Lord, and he said to them again, 'Peace be with you. As the Father sent me, so I am sending you.' After saying this, he breathed on them and said: 'Receive the Holy Spirit. (John 20:20-22)

Confirmation is one of the sacraments of initiation, along with Baptism and Eucharist. The Sacrament of Confirmation draws us into a greater awareness of the Holy Spirit, which we received at Baptism. Through this sacrament, we confirm the presence of the baptismal gifts we have already received; we are sealed with the gift - undeserved and unearned - of the Holy Spirit.

For those who were baptized as infants, the typical age for receiving Confirmation is eighth grade, following a period of preparation. Contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for more information.
