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, Diane Whittemore (860-913-0241).
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 Pat Piano, Pastoral Associate (860-232-8594).
