Confirmation

Confirmation is a sacrament where the Spirit of God is called upon to strengthen and guide the person being confirmed.  It helps us recognize that we need the support of God to live a good life, a life of integrity.  The sacrament serves as a remembrance that wherever we are we can always call on the Spirit of God to support us. On Confirmation day, confirmandi receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.  Children who were baptized as infants will be confirmed during Grade Seven.  Our Grade Seven children are prepared for the Sacrament of Confirmation in the Catholic schools of the parish.

Parents whose children are in Private and Public Schools and would like to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation must contact the Diocese of Hamilton to register their child in the Parish Program.
