Confirmation marks a beginning. It is not merely a graduation, or an end to formal education in the faith, but involves a decision on the part of the young person to join with us fully in the work of salvation. The individual is recognized as one freely accepting engagement in a process of ongoing conversion within a supportive community of faith that is also experiencing that process.
The Confirmation Handbook is intended to be used as a guide for youth grades 9 and older and their parents as they prepare for the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation. It outlines the process and the expectations involved in each element. Orientation for students and parents will be held on Sept 5 at 7pm in the Gathering Area.
