Every baptized person not yet confirmed can and should receive the sacrament of Confirmation. Since Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist form a unity, it follows that “the faithful are obliged to receive this sacrament at the appropriate time,” for without Confirmation and Eucharist, Baptism is certainly valid and efficacious, but Christian initiation remains incomplete. (Catechism of the Catholic Church, par. 1306)
Confirmation is not about deciding to be Catholic. By virtue of one’s baptism, they are already Catholic. Confirmation, a sacrament of initiation, completes baptism. Confirmation is more about a person responding to God’s generous outpouring of love and the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Please Note: Families with children who for any reason are beyond the regularly scheduled grade programs for the reception of the sacraments are urged to notify us and plans will be made to help them complete the necessary preparation.
