We, the Confirmation team are looking forward to sharing this journey of faith with you as you prepare to receive the sacrament of Confirmation.  We are very excited that you have chosen to receive this sacrament and pray that this year will be a time of great spiritual growth.

As you will see, Confirmation preparation involves learning, sharing, serving, fellowship, spiritual growth, and some fun, too.  During this journey, you will be given the opportunity to learn more about your Catholic faith and what it means to be a disciple of Jesus the Christ.

Receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation is far from the end of your spiritual growth.  It is another step as you continue your life long process of becoming like Christ!  The Confirmation Team is here for you if you need anything!  God bless you in this coming process.
