About the Sacrament
It is not always easy to be a witness to our faith. We need special help from God, just as Jesus’ disciples did. Just as the disciples were blessed with the fullness of the Holy Spirit and received the Gifts of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, we receive the sign or the seal of the Holy Spirit in Confirmation. This Sacrament perfects our baptismal grace and through the gifts of the Holy Spirit helps us grow to Christian maturity. It strengthens our bond with the Church, associates us more closely with her mission and helps us bear witness to Jesus in our words and deeds.
Confirmation is normally conferred in our diocese around 14 years of age. Click HERE to be directed to our Confirmation Information page. Please contact Teresa Whiteside for more information.

Those who are baptized and have made their First Communion, but are not confirmed, may be eligible to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation from the bishop at St. Joseph Cathedral. This is normally done on the first Saturday of November. For more information, contact the parish office.
