Gift of the Holy Spirit
Preparing for the Sacrament
Confirmation is a Sacrament instituted by Christ and different from Baptism. It is administered by laying-on of hands and anointing with chrism accompanied by prayer. This sacrament deepens our baptismal life that calls us to be missionary witnesses of Jesus Christ in our families, neighborhoods, society, and the world. Formation for Confirmation at Holy Spirit is a two-year process for middle school youth and a one-year process for high school youth.
For further information about Youth Confirmation, please email Row David or call 408-997-5106.
For adults wishing to be Confirmed, please email Merry Reardon or call 408-997-5112.
