Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the "sacraments of Christian initiation, whose unity must be safeguarded. It must be explained to the faithful that the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace.
Catechism of the Catholic Church 1285
We are excited to be welcoming Bishop Brennan on Friday, October 6 at 7pm as he confirms the young people of St Augustine, St James and St Joseph, who have been preparing to receive the Sacrament since last September.
Information about Confirmation preparation for 2018 will be available shortly.
