Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the “sacraments of Christian initiation,” whose unity must be safeguarded. It must be explained to the faithful that the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. For “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. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.” CCC 1285
Starting this year, we will begin preparing our Confirmandi during the Spring and summer of their 7th grade year. After ensuring they are ready for the Sacrament, our Confirmandi will be Confirmed in the fall of their 8th grade year, after which they will be invited to participate in our Frassati Youth Ministry Programs.
Confirmation will be celebrated two times in 2022. It will be first celebrated on March 1st, 2022 at 7:00PM at Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral in Indianapolis with our current 8th graders. The Rite of Confirmation will again be celebrated on September 22nd, 2022 @7:00PM at Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral in Indianapolis with our current 7th graders, who will have begun their 8th grade year at that point.
