The sacraments of Baptism, the Eucharist and Confirmation lay the foundations of every Christian life. The faithful are born anew by Baptism, strengthened by the sacrament of Confirmation, and receive in the Eucharist the food of eternal life. 1
Confirmation brings an increase and deepening of baptismal grace and unites us more firmly to Christ. Confirmation gives us a special strength of the Holy Spirit to spread and defend the faith by word and action as true witnesses of Christ, to confess the name of Christ boldly, and never to be ashamed of the Cross. 2
Confirmation is prepared for through the Religious Education Youth department. You may contact them at 512.863.0799 for dates and times. Parents, please plan to attend at least two classes to share your child's Confirmation faith journey.
