Confirmation

gifts

 

Confirmation completes and confirms the grace we received at Baptism. In this sacrament the confirmand receives the full outpouring of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Confirmation is a necessary step for us to grow into full maturity in our faith. Those in the 10th grade or older are welcome to receive this sacrament.

Confirmation prayer:

“Breathe in me, O Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy. Act in me, O Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy. Draw my heart, O Holy Spirit, that I love but what is holy. Strengthen me, O Holy Spirit, to defend all that is holy. Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit, that I may always be holy.”
