holy spiritMission Statement

Our mission is to proclaim the life-changing love of God in a way which is accessible and helps lead young people to a deep, lasting relationship with the Person of Jesus Christ and His Church. The Confirmation preparation year is a year of formation and a time which can and should be a time of authentic encounter with Jesus Christ.

 The Sacrament of Confirmation is the Sacrament in the Catholic Church by which “the baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed” (CCC 1285).

Here at St. Mary’s, this Sacrament ordinarily takes place in 9th Grade, a time when the young people are prepared to take this call to live out their faith seriously and are prepared for what the Sacrament asks of them. We are so grateful to everyone who was confirmed this past March and for the joy of journeying with you in this process. Please know of our prayers for each one of you.

Please check back in July for more information about registering for Confirmation Prep for the 2019-2020 school year.
