"Every baptized person not yet confirmed can and should receive the sacrament of Confirmation.
Since Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist form a unity, it follows that "the faithful are obliged to receive
this sacrament at the appropriate time," for without Confirmation and Eucharist, Baptism is certainly valid and efficacious, but Christian initiation remains incomplete." - Catechism of the Church, 1306.
The Two-Year program here at St. Andrews is designed to prepare all of our teens to receive the Holy Sacrament of Confirmation. We are here to help them grow and develop their faith as to make it their own! Once they have received the sacrament and become fully formed members of the church, they will be empowered to go out and spread the Good News! Come Holy Spirit!!
Confirmation Mass is scheduled for Saturday, February 8, 2020 at 1:30 PM.
