Congratulations to our newly Confirmed! Bishop Fisher and Father James Arwady with our young parishioners who have taken the next step of living out their Catholic faith by having the gifts of the Holy Spirit (already present in them at baptism) activated through the marvelous Sacrament of Confirmation.

What is Confirmation?

Confirmation is a true sacrament instituted by Christ. It is administered by laying-on of hands and anointing with chrism accompanied by prayer. The chrism is blessed by the bishop and the bishop administers the sacrament. All baptized persons can and should be confirmed.
