The Sacrament of Confirmation deepens our baptismal life that calls us to be missionary witnesses of Jesus Christ in our families, neighborhoods, society, and the world. Through Confirmation, our personal relationship with Christ is strengthened. We receive the message of faith in a deeper and more intensive manner with great emphasis given to the person of Jesus Christ, who asked the Father to give the Holy Spirit to the Church for building up the community in loving service.
The Holy Spirit bestows seven gifts—wisdom, understanding, knowledge, fortitude, counsel, piety, and fear of the Lord—to assist us in our mission and witness. The impact of these gifts accompanies us in the various stages of our spiritual development.
At Our Lady of Consolation, youth in 8th grade prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation, which typically takes place in the spring. Confirmation Preparation includes:
- Weekly Meetings
- Opportunities for candidates and sponsors to grow together in faith
- A Confirmation Retreat
- Service projects
