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 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, 1285).
St Hugh offers a two-year Confirmation preparation program. Participation in our two-year program is only offered to teens in high school (grades 8 to 12).
To receive the Sacrament of Confirmation for the first time, please contact the Religious Education Office at 305-444-8363 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
