Confirmation

As a sacrament of initiation, Confirmation is intimately related to Baptism and the Eucharist. Christians are reborn in Baptism, strengthened by Confirmation, and sustained by the Eucharist. Specifically, in Confirmation, they are signed with the gift of the Spirit and become more perfect images of their Lord.

Confirmation emphasizes the transformation of life by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Confirmed Christians claim as fully their own the new life into which they were initiated by Baptism. The Church expresses its continued support and concern for the spiritual growth of those who are confirmed and at the same time looks to them to assist others to grow and mature in the Christian life.

The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis recommends the Confirmation be during the tenth grade year. At Guardian Angels we have a two year process which begins in the ninth grade.
