Sacrament of Confirmation Preparation Goals
A process that forms Catholic Christians who know, love and live the faith that...
emphasizes growth and belonging, and developing a relationship with Christ;
allows opportunities to discern, reflect, pray, question and learn about our faith, based from the four pillars of Catholic faith from the Catechism (Creed, Prayer, Moral Life & Sacraments);
understands the Mass and how to become more actively engaged;
uses the gift of free will to personally choose whether to receive the sacrament;
provides relational experiences as one phase of the gradual and lifelong process of conversion and spiritual growth.
