The Sacrament of Confirmation is one of the 7 Sacraments and is a sacrament of initiation. The Catechism of the Catholic Church says this about this powerful sacrament:
“Confirmation perfects Baptismal grace; it is the sacrament which gives the Holy Spirit in order to root us more deeply in the divine filiation, incorporate us more firmly into Christ, strengthen our bond with the Church, associate us more closely with her mission, and help us bear witness to the Christian faith in words accompanied by deeds.” CCC 1316
At Risen Christ parish, we invite youth who are in 5th - 6th grade or older to participate in our Confirmation program.
The curriculum is based on the four pillars of the Catechism of the Catholic Church: Creed, Sacraments, Morality, and Prayer. This approach offers a basic overview of what the Church teaches.
