Sacraments: Confirmation

Confirmation is the Sacrament of the Holy Spirit that brings to fulfillment the gifts first given to us at Baptism. It’s purpose is to fill us with the gifts of the Holy Spirit so that we can be a true witness to Christ in all that we say and do.   Whereas in baptism we were born anew or born again, in confirmation we are strengthened. Like baptism, confirmation confers an indelible mark upon the soul and therefore cannot be repeated.  

Confirmation at St. Elizabeth generally takes place in the spring of 8th grade.  Confirmation preparation is done through our parish Faith Formation program.
