P.S. So what is confirmation you ask…
Confirmation marks the point in the Christian journey at which a young person affirms for themself the faith into which they have been baptized and their intention to live a life of committed discipleship. This affirmation is confirmed through prayer and the laying on of hands by the confirming bishop. The Church also asks God to give you power through the Holy Spirit to enable you to live in the way of Jesus.
More information on confirmation will be made available as we get closer to the program beginning!
