Introduction

Welcome to Confirmation Preparation - Year 1

 

We welcome you to your 1st of a 2-year Confirmation preparation at Queen of the Holy Rosary Catholic Church. All parishioners are looking forward to sharing with you this journey of faith as you prepare to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.

As you will learn, Confirmation preparation involves learning, sharing, serving, fellowship, spiritual growth and fun! You will be given the opportunity to learn more about your Catholic faith and what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ.

 

What is Confirmation? Confirmation is one of the 3 Sacraments of Initiation.

  • While Baptism is the first step of initiation into the life of the Church, Confirmation can be seen as the completion of the Baptismal commitment.

  • According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, “The reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace” (no. 128 There are two primary effects from the sacrament of Confirmation: strengthening of one’s bond with the Church, and reception of the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

 

The following guide details the requirements and expectations at Queen of the Holy Rosary Parish for those enrolled in Confirmation preparation as well as the expectations of their parents and sponsors. This commitment involves the whole family, and we ask that you carefully examine the expectations.
