About the Sacrament of Confirmation

Pentecost by Ducciodi Buoninsegna

Preparation at St. Raphael’s

To assist parents of children aged 12-18, in preparing their children for confirmation, the parish normally runs a Confirmation course every other year. For more information please speak to the Parish Priest.

Adults over the age of 18 should follow the RCIA course.

“Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. For by the sacrament of Confirmation the baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, ref. 1285.)
