Confirmation is a Sacrament of Initiation that completes the grace we received in Baptism. It seals, or confirms, this grace through the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit. This sacrament also makes us better able to participate in the worship and apostolic life of the Church. Learn more about the Sacrament of Confirmation.
At St. Gabriel, young people who are in the ninth grade or older and who have received the sacraments of Baptism and Eucharist, are invited to participate in the process in the fall of each year.
Preparation involves catechesis and instruction in faith led by a team of dedicated parishioners. It is augmented by speakers and an annual retreat. All sessions are held on Sunday evenings beginning the the 5:00 PM Mass, with sessions following immediately. We begin September. Confirmation will take place on March 8, 2020 at 2:00 and 5:00 PM with Bishop Perez.
