Veni, Sancte Spiritus! Come, Holy Spirit!
The Sacrament of Confirmation completes a Catholic's initiation into the Church. Initiation begins at Baptism and is deepened in the life of the community in reception of the Eucharist. Confirmation completes initation and strengthens the Gifts of the Holy Spirit in the candidates.
Parish youth are confirmed during the Easter season of their eighth grade year. Eighth graders in our Parish School of Religion, St. Peter Grade School and those attending private Catholic schools participate in a year long program called Decision Point crerated by DynamicCatholic.com. All attend two Sunday sessions and a retreat together and participate in organized service projects. Classroom preparation takes place in either the PSR program or St. Peter School religion classes or private school options.
Please pray for our parish Confirmation candidates for 2016-17 who continue their journey of faith toward their celebration of Confirmation on Wednesday May 10, 2017.
ATTENTION: 8th Graders in private Catholic schools: contact Jan Hartmann prior to August 15, 2016 about joining the Confirmation class of 2017. You will be able to participate in all program events and preparation Thank You!
