CONFIRMATION PROGRAM 2020-2021

In time of pandemic we offer our parishioners four possible options for running confirmation program for 2021:

1.      Interactive in person confirmation program, with the possibility that it will get shut down before completion.

2.      Delay the start of the program until the fall of 2022.

3.      Youth can attend one of the three online courses:

a.   through https://www.catholiconline.school/pages/confirmation and receive a certificate, after which they can present the certificate to Father and get confirmed.

b.  Ascension Press offers their course (“Chosen”) online at

      https://ascensionpress.com/collections/chosen-your-journey-toward-confirmation

c.   Catholic Dynamic offers their course (“Decision Point”) online at https://www.dynamiccatholic.com/confirmation/decision-point.html

4.      Parents can prepare their child at home with the program of their choice and approved by the priest.

 

 

Normally candidates are from grades 7 and 8, but child aged 11 is considered old enough to receive this sacrament. If you have questions, please call Peter van Kampen at 403-848-0955.

APPLICATION FOR SACRAMENT OF CONFIRMATION

 

     

Confirmation is one of the sacraments of Christian initiation along with Baptism and the Eucharist. Confirmation completes the grace received at Baptism. Through it, the candidates are more united to the church and are given a special strength from the Holy Spirit to be witnesses of Jesus Christ. 
In Baptism, the child’s parents promised for them. But in Confirmation, the young person makes the decision on their own to say "yes".
The Sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated by the Bishop or a priest and is conferred by the laying on of hands followed by the anointing in the form of a cross on the forehead with chrism (perfumed oil consecrated by the Bishop).

 

The Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit:

Wisdom
Understanding
Counsel (Right Judgement)
Fortitude (Courage)
Knowledge
Piety (Reverence)
Fear of the Lord (Wonder and awe in God’s presence)
