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 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.
In our parish schools, preparation is received through regular instruction time and additional resources through online portals and the parish.
Children in pubic and private schools who would like to celebrate the sacrament of Confirmation, will receive instruction material from the parish for immediate preparation. These materials will be available mid-January 2022. Please register your child through the parish office: 905-844-3303
