Preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation is a special time in a person’s life. God is calling us closer to him and is waiting to give us the gift of his Grace through His Sacraments. At confirmation we are showered with Grace in a special way, through the gifts of the Holy Spirit. We are “sealed” with the gift of the Holy Spirit – we belong to Christ forever.
Along with your parents, the Priests, teachers, catechists and the Faith Formation Office are here to walk with you on this spiritual journey. During this time of preparation, we invite you and your family to delve further into your faith, to seek and ask for a deeper relationship with Christ. The St. Martins Faith Community will work with you, to provide opportunities where you and your family encounter the real person of Jesus Christ.
