Confirmation Sacramental Preparation 2022-2023
We are so blessed to be able to journey with you and your child on their Sacramental Journeys. Father Carlos and our Sacramental Prep team are here to accompany you and your child. Please refer to the information below which outlines the preparation process, including the role of families, classes, dates, registration information and contact information.
Role of Families: Your child’s first and most important teacher.
Some things to remember:
❖ CCC 2221 “The role of parents in education is of such importance that it is almost impossible to provide an adequate substitute. The right and the duty of parents to educate their children are primordial and inalienable.”
❖ Sacrament: An outward sign instituted by Christ to give grace. The seven sacraments touch all the stages and all the important moments of our Christian life. The Sacraments of the Church are tangible signs of the sacred. The Sacraments are not only a sign of God, but they are a sign of God’s action in our world.
❖ Confirmation: The Sacrament of Confirmation helps a person remain faithful to his or her baptismal commitment to witness to Christ and to serve others. The gifts of the Holy Spirit associated with Confirmation are strengths (or virtues) that Christian living requires if it is to be fruitful and complete.
❖ Cost/Fee: $60
Preparation Commitment from Candidates and Families:
- Children and Parents: Workbook preparation at home as a family prior to first class.
