Final Interview Review Sheet

For those currently in the Confirmation program during the summer we require that you finish do your sponsor packet with your sponsor, and prepare for your final interview. The following are the things that you must know for your final interview:

  • The Our Father
  • The Hail Mary
  • Glory Be
  • Nicene Creed
  • 7 Gifts of the Holy Spirit
  • The teen will be required to tell the interviewer a little bit about their Confirmation Saint
  • They will need to be able to explain why they picked their sponsor
  • They will also have to explain their service and what they learned from it

Teen will turn in the notes from their sponsor packets at their final interview. 

Confirmation

 

If you have been Baptized, then you have been called to Confirmation. It is not a question of "What shall I believe?" It is a response of "Here I am".

The final Sacrament of Initiation, the celebration of Confirmation is a momentous cause for rejoicing in the Church. As these teens take upon themselves the full inheritance promised them in Baptism, the entire Church welcomes them, noting the new permanent mark upon their souls...

That these young men and women have been Sealed in the Holy Spirit.

A "Rite" not a "Right"

 

While the Church rejoices with each person she can bring into full initiation through Confirmation, she also recognizes that this Sacrament is far greater than a tick on a checklist of faith. It carries with it a grave responsibility, to live, proclaim and defend the faith. As such, the Church has established a criteria for those seeking Confirmation to ensure that they do so in full knowledge of the grace and duty they are taking upon themselves, as well as to equip them with the tools necessary to bring the blessings of this Sacrament to fruition. 

So if you are ready to take on the fullness of your faith, to accept the Holy Spirit into you heart in a new and powerful way, and receive a mark of this grace that will last unto eternity; then sign up for our Confirmation Preparation program, and allow the power of the Holy Spirit to overcome YOU.
