Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist (Holy Communion) comprise the
three Christian Sacraments of Initiation. Confirmation is the
sacrament that seals and strengthens in us the gifts of the Holy
Spirit given to us in Baptism.
Confirmation is a part of becoming a full member of the
Catholic Church. A number of liturgical roles, such as serving
as a reader and extraordinary minister of the Eucharist, require
The Church also views Confirmation as a profound outpouring
of the Holy Spirit, which helps to sustain the faithful in the Christian
life, and helps each person to experience the love of God more deeply.
The Church sees Confirmation as a necessary step in becoming ready
for marriage in the Catholic faith.
Are you an adult Catholic who has not been confirmed? It is not too
late! MQP offers an Adult Confirmation program both in the winter
and in the summer each year. Information about our summer program
for 2013 will be available soon.
