Who can prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation at Our Lady of Loreto?
Anyone who is in 6th -12th grade in August 2019 and a member of OLOL, (Summer - High School Only. Non parish candidates can register in May for Summer, mid-August for fall, if space is available. Parents of younger students, please contact Joan Deeb at JDeeb@OurLadyofLoreto.org. or visit the Children's Ministry page. )
Anyone who has received Baptism, First Communion and First Reconciliation.
Someone who is an active member of the parish
Someone who takes part in the home and parish preparation offered by the parish. Proper preparation for this Sacrament is very important, but no amount of study can take the place of the reality and power of Sacraments themselves. In Confirmation we complete our Baptism and receive even more strength and grace through the Holy Spirit. We need to learn to respond faithfully to this powerful gift. No one will be turned away from the Sacrament due to financial constraints, any donation is acceptable.
Goals of Confirmation Preparation
Works within the parish and family
Homework to be done by parents and candidates, you need to be active in parish life
Focuses on the Sacrament of Confirmation
This is not a complete catechesis of the entire Catholic faith
Confirmation as a beginning not an end
Confirmation is a new step in growing close to Christ; it is not a graduation ceremony
