THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT: WISDOM, UNDERSTANDING, RIGHT JUDGMENT, COURAGE, KNOWLEDGE, REVERENCE, WONDER/AWE
By the sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence, one becomes a true witness of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.
Preparation for this sacrament for “young adults” is part of our Faith Formation/CCD program and is conferred each year after Easter for those in their sophomore year of high school. For more information contact our Confirmation Coordinator, Paul Travers (860-372-7532; email@example.com).
Preparation of Adults for reception of this sacrament is available through the parish Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) process. For more information contact Sr. Ann Kane, CSJ, Pastoral Associate (860-232-8594; firstname.lastname@example.org).
