"Confirmation completes baptismal grace, binds the baptized more perfectly to the church and enriches them with the special strength of the Holy Spirit, making the baptized true witnesses of Christ, obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed." [CCC, No. 1285]
Preparation for the sacrament of confirmation at San Felipe de Neri Parish is a two-year process. During the course of the two years' students review the fundamentals of our Catholic Faith, the sacramental life, and are provided with the preparation necessary to help them receive the sacrament of Confirmation so as to live the life of fully initiated Catholics; promoting the life of the Gospels and the love of Christ.
Preparation for the sacrament generally begins in 8th grade. Students must be in High School between the 9th and 12th grade in order to receive the Sacrament of confirmation.
Classes are Mondays from 6:00-7:30 pm at the mission church of San José in Los Duranes at the parish hall.
