Confirmation

The Sacrament of Confirmation 

 

Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the “sacraments of Christian initiation, whose unity must be safeguarded. It must be explained to the faithful that the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace.
Catechism of the Catholic Church 1285

The Sacrament of Confirmation for our youth is usually celebrated in the spring.  Confirmation for Adults is also available.  Please contact the Religious Education Office at 302-644-7413 for more information.
