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. For further details, please see the Letter of Invitation 2018
Preparation involves catechesis and instruction in faith led by a team of dedicated 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. All sessions are held on Sunday evenings beginning in September. Registration takes place online (please see below to register)
