The Sacrament of Confirmation celebrates the strengthening of the Holy Spirit and the full reception of the Gifts of the Spirit within the life of the receiver.
Throughout history the Church has asked that the baptised person be suitably instructed, properly disposed and able to renew their baptismal promises to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.
As parents, you are the first and primary educators of the Faith; however, it is the Church's responsibility to help you in your efforts to properly prepare these teens to become adults in their faith.
"Decision Point" is a powerful new program which will develop, strengthen, and encourage through 72 short-films of 3-8 mins "The-Best-Version-of-Yourself."
This Program is available free online. Click Decision Point to view the Program.
It is expected that Parents and Sponsors discuss the insights of these films and their own personal faith with the Candidates.
I will make myself available to anyone if there are any questions about the program.
The Church thanks you for all your interest and your efforts in the lives of these teens who have been entrusted to you by God.
