Sponsors for Confirmation are a confirmed, practicing Catholic who will work closely with the candidate as a mentor who will support the candidate during the journey of preparation for the Sacrament. The sponsor presents the Candidate to the Bishop during the Confirmation Mass.
Candidates will attend one session per month throughout the year. The sessions will enrich the candidate's faith to gain knowledge, strengthen hearts and bring revelation.
As candidates, you are asked to spend a day in community, prayer and conversation with the goal to deepen faith. This retreat is designed to teach candidates about the initiation of Confirmation and the power of the Holy Spirit.
Confirmation empowers candidates to live the faith in a very public way – by answering the call to serve. Candidates are asked to serve in the following areas: Liturgical Ministry, benefiting the parish, benefiting the community, and social justice.
