Sacrament of Confirmation
From the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Paragraph 1303, reads as follows:
The effects of Confirmation:
Young people preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation will grow as disciples and followers of Jesus Christ as they prepare to receive the Holy Spirit. They will spend time as a community, under the guidance of young adult leaders and peer ministers, growing deeper in their understanding of the Catholic Faith and their relationship with Jesus. They will spend time in prayer and serving in parish ministries and the larger community. They will attend an overnight retreat, choose a Confirmation Saint and will write a short biography on their life, as well as write a letter to the Bishop who will confirm them.
Newly confirmed young people will be empowered to live as witnesses of their Catholic Faith in their families, schools, and our parish community.
Classes are Sundays, 6:00-8:00 p.m. at St. Philip Neri beginning January 28, 2024. Confirmation Liturgy will take place in November 2023. (We take a break from classes in the summer, but encourage candidates to work on their service projects over the summer- one service option is our Summer Camp.)
