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 through a mailing and notices in our parish bulletin.
Preparation involves catechesis and instruction in faith led by a team of parishioners. It is augmented by speakers and an annual retreat. Special sacramental preparation sessions are also held for our young people and their parents and sponsors.
