Confirmation

Confirmation is the special outpouring of the Holy Spirit.  Its effects are to:

  • Root us more deeply in our relationship with God
  • Unite us more firmly to Christ
  • Increase the gifts of the Holy Spirit in us
  • Strengthen our bond with the Church
  • Associate us more closely to our mission of bearing witness to Christ
  • Help us to spread and defend the faith by word and deed

 

Youth must have attended and participated in either:

1.)  A  Religious Education program

2.)  Attended Xavier High School or another Catholic high school, for one year prior to Confirmation.
