Confirmation is a sacrament of initiation which completes baptism through sealing in Holy Spirit and anoints the recipient as priest, prophet, and king.
Information and Forms
FAMILY CENTERED RELIGIOUS EDUCATION
Family centered religious education is rooted in the Catholic Church’s teaching that parents are the primary educators of their children. It is extremely important that parents actively participate in the catechetical process by deepening their own relationship with Christ and the Church. Working together we can better equip our children for a lifelong proclamation of faith and charity.
In this model, the church has two distinct roles: First, the church provides the traditional education programs for children. Second, the church provides continuing education for parents to better enable them to fulfill their role as the primary educators of their children.
To assist parents in this important work at least one parent of any child enrolled in any sacramental preparation will be required to attend Adult Formation sessions. The sessions are conveniently scheduled during the time the children will be attending their own classes and babysitting will be provided on an as needed basis. Additionally, these sessions will be open to all other parents, sponsors and the parish at large.
