Confirmation Preparation

The Sacrament of Confirmation in the Catholic Church is a rite of initiation where the confirmed person, known as the confirmandi, receives the gifts of the Holy Spirit. This is done through the imposition of hand and anointing with oils by the bishop. It signifies a deeper communion with the Church and strengthens the individual for service to the Body of Christ. In short, Confirmation is the full outpouring of the Holy Spirit as once granted to the apostles on the day of Pentecost. Confirmation brings Catholics a deepening of baptismal grace and unites us more firmly to Christ. It increases the gifts of the Holy Spirit and leaves an indelible mark on the soul just like baptism.

Chosen (Grade 9+)

 “The need to cultivate the next generation of Catholics have never been greater. Today, our teens are bombarded with confusing and conflicting ideas about who they should be. Chosen helps to open their eyes and hearts to reveal how God sees them and how to develop a deeper relationship with Jesus and his Church (Welcome to Chosen, vii).
