The Sacrament of Confirmation
This is the second of the “Sacraments of Christian Initiation.” This sacrament seals the baptized person with the grace and gifts of the Holy Spirit and gives the person additional strength to live and defend the faith.
In keeping with diocesan guidelines, Our Lady of the Rosary implements a two-year program to prepare for Confirmation. The first year of the program consists in participation in religion classes at Our Lady of the Rosary, St. Joseph’s, or a parish religious education program. In addition to the same requirements as the first year, Confirmation candidates attend a series of additional classes and activities. At Our Lady of the Rosary Parish, the sacrament of Confirmation is administered in the fall of 9th grade.
The Confirmation Program at Our Lady of the Rosary Parish combines a variety of methods of preparation which include:
- Faithful attendance at Confirmation classes
- 20 service hours
- Retreat day
- Saint presentation
- Participation in the Real Love, Real Life Program – (Presented by Family Honor, Inc.) You need to sign-up online for this program at www.familyhonor.org
Confirmation preparation requires a commitment on both the part of the parent and the Confirmation candidate. We are looking forward to preparing your children for this beautiful sacrament.
