The Catholic Church recognizes seven sacraments, instituted by Christ Himself, which are outward signs of an inward grace acting in our souls.
Confirmation is considered the Perfection of Baptism. By the Sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. The anointing of the Confirmandi with the consecrated oil of chrism represents the safeguarding by the Holy Spirit of the graces conferred on the Christian at Baptism.
Confirmation at OLP:
The Sacrament of Confirmation is offered at OLP each year in the Fall Semester for students that have been in the PSR program at least one year prior to the Sacrament and to students in our day school that are in the 8th grade. Please check with the office for details.
