Welcome to the Pax Christi Confirmation Program! We are excited to journey with your family and teen toward the Sacrament of Confirmation. The Sacrament of Confirmation is given to the baptized in order to more perfectly bind the Candidates to God through His Church. Through this Sacrament, your child will be enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit to be true witnesses of Christ. Confirmation is not a graduation from Religious Education or the faith. Therefore, the preparation for receiving this Sacrament cannot be simply a class your child must attend to receive head knowledge. Instead, this is a period of time for them to deepen their faith and ask God for the Grace to live it out in a more real way. The youth who fully enter into this process of ongoing conversion have the opportunity to encounter Christ and become his disciples. Because of this, our entire Confirmation Preparation Program is structured in a way to encourage the candidates to not just go through the motions but to be open to the life changing power of the Holy Spirit as we see in the apostles at Pentecost.
