The Sacrament of Confirmation

Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the “sacraments of Christian initiation,” whose unity must be safeguarded. The reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace.

For “by the sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.”

Confirmation at our Parish

Confirmation is usually done at our parish to before the end of the first half of the year to coincide with the Feast of St. Joseph or the Anniversary of St. Joseph’s Church. The schedule is announced in advance to provide ample time for those who will receive the sacrament to attend the required catechism classes conducted at our parish.

Please wait for the announcement or contact the Parish Priest for more information
