Confirmation along with Baptism and Eucharist are sacraments of initiation. Confirmation completes the gifts of the Holy Spirit we have received through Baptism. Through Confirmation the Spirit strengthens us and we are annointed with the grace and gifts of the Holy Spirit namely Wisdom, Understanding, Right Judgement, Courage, Knowledge, Wonder and Awe. By this outpouring, Christians are enabled to spread God’s love throughout the world bringing peace and joy to all through the Holy Spirit. 
Visit the Sacramental Programs page to find out important scheduled dates for the sacraments this Year.
