What is Confirmation?
In the Sacrament of Confirmation, as a baptized son or daughter of God, we become "sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit" and receive gifts that help strengthen us for service to the Body of Christ.
Why is Confirmation Important?
In Confirmation we receive a special grace that deepens and strengthens our faith. This new level of faith is strong enough not only for our own needs but for the needs of others with whom we are called to share. It is a spiritual “growing up” where one embraces the responsibility to Christ for caring for neighbor and the welfare of others.
Who can be Confirmed?
At St. Mary Magdalene, Confirmation is offered to our 12th grade students. This process is achieved in accordance with Diocesan guidelines consisting of Religious Education requirements, a Confirmation retreat and a letter to the Bishop. Learn more at the Religious Education Department for Youth
Adults can also be confirmed at St. Mary Magdalene through our RCIA program
"From this fact, Confirmation brings an increase and deepening of baptismal grace: it unites us more firmly to Christ." - Catechism of the Catholic Church
