"Confirmation perfects Baptismal grace; it is the sacrament which seals us with the Holy Spirit, helping us to deepen our faith in Christ and the teachings and traditions of the Church, to remain close to her mission and to witness our Christian faith in our words and actions."
– Catechism of the Catholic Church 1316
Preparation is to be a process of study, prayer, and service to others. Candidates should understand that this process is a model for Christian living throughout their adult lives.
“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’” (John 14:6) We aim to discover that Jesus is the Way by removing obstacles and presenting the gospel message; the Truth by discovering who Jesus is and learning to follow Him; and the Life by committing to a life of discipleship.
