Confirmation

Confirmation

“Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the ‘sacraments of Christian initiation,’ whose unity must be safeguarded. It must be explained to the faithful that the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. For by the sacrament of Confirmation the baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.” Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1285

The sacrament of Confirmation in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee is celebrated when children reach the age of 16 (or junior year of high school). Please call the Christian Formation office to register for Confirmation preparation classes.

Adults seeking Confirmation are invited to participate in the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults. For more information call the Parish Office.
