The reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is evidence of your commitment to the Catholic Faith. Confirmation completes your initiation into the Church and so, in many ways, is a beginning for you. As a parish, we are eager to assist and guide your faithful response to the Spirit within you. It is our hope that you will feel comfortable to approach our staff with your ideas, questions, and possible participation in parish ministries.
As a Confirmation Candidate, you should:
Be a baptized Catholic and a member of Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish who celebrates your faith, especially on Sundays.
Receive the sacraments of Eucharist and Reconciliation as a part of the expression of your faith.
Recognize the importance of ongoing faith formation.
Participate in religious education classes in the parish or through your school. Your commitment to participating in the Confirmation program is essential and should be a priority.
With your parents, catechists, and clergy to guide you, the desire to receive the sacrament should be your own. May the Holy Spirit come alive in you!
