Just as bodies and minds grow, Catholics believe that the soul also needs to grow in the life of grace. The sacrament of Confirmation builds on the sacraments of Baptism, Penance, and Holy Communion, completing the process of initiation into the Catholic community.
The celebration of Confirmation is traditionally celebrated in the Spring of eleventh grade (twelfth grade is also welcome). Formal instruction in the faith is recommended. Students participate in the preparation provided for by the Religious Education Staff. Questions regarding the preparation of this sacrament for high school juniors and seniors in the religious education program and parishioners of Christ Our Light Catholic Parish can be directed to Matt Kehrer, Coordinator of Youth Ministry and Confirmation, at 763-389-2115 or email: [email protected]
