It is always a challenge to be a witness to our faith in Jesus. The Sacrament of Confirmation gives us the help we need to bear strong witness to our faith by giving us the fullness of the gifts of the Holy Spirit like the disciples on the day of Pentecost. This Sacrament perfects our baptismal grace and through the gifts of the Holy Spirit helps us grow to Christian maturity. It strengthens our bond with the Church, associates us more closely with Her mission and helps us bear witness to Jesus in our words and deeds.
Students at Immaculate Conception begin preparation for Confirmation in 7th Grade and continue their preparation into 8th Grade. There are several required retreats and service hours as part of their preparation. If you have questions or need more information, please contact Kathy Hamilton at firstname.lastname@example.org or 330-343-6976 (ext. 6).
