The Sacrament of Confirmation (or Chrismation) is a rite confirming an individual's Baptism. This Sacrament strengthens a Christian and helps him enter into a more intimate union with Christ. It is a Sacrament which opens one to the powerful gifts of the Holy Spirit as we strive to lead a Christian life and bring others to the knowledge and love of God. (2)
Confirmation for 7th and 8th grade classes is administered each even year. Parents of parish children not enrolled in St. Joseph School should contact the parish office for information.
"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me; He has anointed me, and sent me out to preach the gospel to the poor, to restore the brokenhearted; to bid the prisoners go free, and the blind to have sight; to set the oppressed at liberty, to proclaim a year when men may find acceptance with the Lord." - Luke 4:18-19
