Confirmation means "strengthening." It is a time for our eighth graders to deepen their faith and make the decision to follow Jesus and live his Gospel message to the world. At Baptism, their parents made the choice to have them raised as members of the Catholic Church; during Confirmation, they must decide if they will continue to live as a Catholic. All of their studies and preparation during this school year have been geared to help them realize what this commitment to Jesus, the Catholic Church, and humanity entails. Rather than viewing Confirmation as an ending, we hope that they will view it as the beginning of living their faith in a more active and mature way. The 2022 Confirmation liturgy was held on Saturday, February 5, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. with Bishop Hicks as the celebrant. Below are the pictures from this year's Confirmation.
