Although many receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in their early teenage years, long after they have already received First Communion (Holy Eucharist), Confirmation is considered the second Sacrament of Initiation.
In some writings, Confirmation is considered to be the “perfecting” of the Baptism, in that the Baptized are “more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit.
We are accepting registrations now for the Sacrament of Confirmation for children Grade 6 and above. The school, pastoral team and interested parishioners help our young people (usually in Grade 6) prepare for their confirmation by providing them with an awareness of the commitment that they will be making in our Catholic community. The Confirmation registration meeting is usually early in the Calendar year.
