Although many receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in their early teenage years, long after they have already received First Communion (Holy Eucharist), Confirmation is considered the second Sacrament of Initiation. 

In some writings, Confirmation is considered to be the “perfecting” of the Baptism, in that the Baptized are “more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit.

Santa Maria Goretti parish offers sacramental preparation for children preparing for Confirmation.

The Sacrament of Confirmation will be celebrated on Saturday April 27, 2024, at the 5 pm Mass.
