Confirmation is one of the Seven Sacraments of the Catholic Church and is one of the three Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Communion. These three sacraments are the ones that the rest of our Faith is based around.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church states that “the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. For ‘by the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.’” (CCC 1285)
Because Confirmation is such an important sacrament, it is important to prepare as much as possible before receiving it. At Light of Christ, we work closely with candidates to prepare them to receive this amazing sacrament, helping them to understand and grow in their Faith.
During the candidates’ year of confirmation classes, they dive deeper into their faith, together with their families. We believe that parents should be involved in their children’s catechesis, in keeping with the Catechism’s emphasis on the role of the domestic Church. (CCC 2221-2231)
