The Sacrament of Confirmation * will take place on Sunday-Sept. 16 @ 5 p.m. @ St. John the Baptist, Mfld. for those youth of our parish who have been taking instruction and preparing to receive this special sacrament. Please pray for them.
Confirmation: Confirmation is a true sacrament instituted by Christ and different from baptism. It is administered by laying-on of hands and anointing with chrism accompanied by prayer. The chrism is blessed by the bishop and the bishop administers the sacrament. All baptized persons can and should be confirmed. The effect of the sacrament of confirmation is to give strength in faith and for the confession of faith and to impress an indelible character.
