In the Sacrament of Confirmation, baptized Catholics receive the Holy Spirit to help them become more like Christ and be strengthened in bearing witness to him.
Adults who have not yet received this sacrament may decide to do so for any number of reasons. For example, they might be prompted by something that happens in their lives – an engagement, a birth, a move, a death, etc. Or it could be on their minds for a long time before they feel ready to do something about it. They might be preparing their children for sacraments and decide that the time is right for them as well. Or perhaps they feel they have finally reached a point where they can focus on their spiritual lives.
If you or someone you know has been baptized and received Eucharist in the Catholic Church but never received the Sacrament of Confirmation, now may be the time. This year’s Confirmation preparation sessions for Catholic adults (18 and older) will be held on Monday evenings beginning March 6. Anyone interested should make an appointment to meet with Cindy Sobiesiak by February 27 to discuss the details.
