THE SACRAMENT OF CONFIRMATION
“Lord, send out your spirit, and renew the face of the earth.”
The Sacrament of Confirmation, along with Baptism and Eucharist, is one of the three sacraments of initiation. At Confirmation the Holy Spirit strengthens the Baptized Christian and endows her or him with gifts to enable us to carry out our mission to be Christ in the world and to continue building God’s kingdom. To be fully a member of the Catholic Church, one needs to be Baptized, Confirmed and receive first Eucharist.
Confirmation is a two year process of preparation at St. Elizabeth of the Trinity Parish through our teen program. This journey invites the youth to grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Our goal is that our youth become further acquainted with the unconditional Love of God so that they might face the challenges of life rooted in faith and without fear.
