Confirmation                                    

 
In Confirmation the soul of a baptized Christian is imprinted with a permanent seal that can be received only once and marks this individual forever as a Christian.  The gift of the Holy Spirit is the strength from above in which this individual puts the grace of his baptism into practice through his life and acts as a ‘witness’ for Christ.”

St. Thomas More Confirmation Program 2020

At St. Thomas More, the sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated for youth in Grades 7-12, in Fall 2020. Confirmands (those to be confirmed) must go through the confirmation preparation, be properly disposed to receive the sacrament and be able to renew their baptismal promises. * If your child is the age of Confirmation and has not yet received the Sacrament of 1st Reconciliation or 1st Communion, they can receive all of these sacraments at this time!

What did youth say about Confirmation 2018? 

 
“I learned that no matter the cost, God will be there with me”
 
“The lessons were interesting and weren’t as boring as I thought”
