Receive the Holy Spirit
In Confirmation, Christians receive a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit and deepening of baptismal graces needed to grow as mature disciples of Christ in the life of the Church. Normally Confirmation at St. Joe’s is celebrated in the spring of the ninth grade and students are required to have one year of faith formation prior to this. The weekly preparation meetings are informal and based on small groups, which we find connects the students more effectively with one another and the parish. Contact the office for next year’s preparation schedule.
For those missing this Sacrament or Baptism or Communion we have a weekly meeting for adults or young adults throughout the year.
