“Confirmation completes the grace of Baptism by a special outpouring of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, which seal or ‘confirm’ the baptized in unison with Christ and equip them for active participation in the worship and apostolic life of the Church” (Catechism of the Catholic Church).

The Sacrament of Confirmation helps to root individuals deeply in their identity as God’s children, filled with the grace of the Holy Spirit. At Confirmation individuals choose and own their identify in the Church, committing themselves to lives that reflect the Holy Spirit living within them.

Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation takes place through the St. Joseph Faith Formation Department.  More details are coming soon.

Baptized adults wishing to receive this sacrament, or adults seeking admittance into the Catholic Church, must take part in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, known as the RCIA.
