"…you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you…"
– Acts 1:8
THE SACRAMENT OF CONFIRMATION
Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the "sacraments of Christian initiation," whose unity must be safeguarded. It must be explained to the faithful that the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. For "by the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed." ˜Catechism of the Catholic Church
POLICY FOR CERTIFICATES OF ELIGIBILITY
In order to receive a Certificate of Eligibility to be a Sponsor for Confirmation, you must be a practicing Catholic registered in the parish. If married, you must be married in the Church. You must attend Mass regularly. The use of your envelope each week will tell us that you are attending regularly. This will avoid problems or embarrassments in the future.
