God strengthens our souls also through the Sacrament of Confirmation. Even though Jesus’ disciples received grace before his Resurrection, on Pentecost the Holy Spirit came to strengthen them with new graces for the difficult work ahead. Then they went out and preached the Gospel fearlessly and carried out the mission Christ had given them. Later, they laid hands on others to strengthen them as well (Acts 8:14-17).
Through Confirmation you too are strengthened to meet the spiritual challenges in your life.
The Sacrament of Confirmation completes our Baptismal graces, and fully initiates us into the discipleship of Christ and His Church. Our hope is that sacramental formation within our Parish will prepare our youth to receive all the graces the Holy Spirit wants to give them. “Pillar of Fire, Pillar of Truth” by Catholic Answers.
We have a two-year Confirmation preparation program here at St Thomas the Apostle. Participation in our two-year program is only offered to teens in high school (grades 9-12). Disciples is the name of our first year program, and Apostles is the name of our second year program.
