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. Confirmation information will be provided to students in Grades 6 & Grade 7 at St Jerome’s Catholic School. Other students need to have their parents contact the church office and obtain the required information.
Parents will be required to attend a parent meeting.
Please contact the Parish Office to register for the next preparation session.
