Youth Confirmation Preparation

Youth Confirmation Preparation

Along with Baptism and Eucharist, Confirmation is the final sacrament of Christian Initiation. It represents a sealing of Baptism and the celebration of the coming of the Holy Spirit. The St. Jude the Apostle Confirmation Preperation program is designed to help our young people to explore, deepen and strengthen the seeds of faith they were given at baptism. The candidates, themselves, are choosing the Catholic faith as a way of life.
