Communion & Confirmation
SACRAMENT OF THE EUCHARIST
The Eucharist is the Center of our Catholic worship. It is the greatest of the seven sacraments. Baptized Catholics, at the time of their First Communion are called to worship at the Eucharist with the parish community once per week at a weekend Mass and on Holy Days of Obligation. The ministry of bringing Holy Communion to the sick is an important ministry in the Church. It brings spiritual nourishment and healing to those who are homebound or recuperating at home. It also provides a connection between the larger parish and those who are not able to join the worshiping community because of age or illness.
SACRAMENT OF CONFIRMATION
The sacrament of Confirmation completes the sacrament of baptism. If baptism is the sacrament of re-birth to a new and supernatural life, confirmation is the sacrament of maturity and coming of age. http://www.catholic.org/prayers/sacrament.php?id=3
Children who are part of our Faith Formation program receive Confirmation in the eighth grade or after completing two years of study.
