In conjunction with Youth Ministry, East Side Catholic Ministries (St. Matthew + All Saints) is helping prepare sophomores (students in 10th grade) to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation during the Spring semester.
The Sacrament of Confirmation celebrates the completion of Baptism and a new outpouring of the Holy Spirit, given through anointing with Sacred Chrism, accompanied by the laying on of hands and prayer, which strengthens the faithful as members of the Church to spread and defend the Catholic Faith by word and deed.
More details on the Confirmation schedule for 2022-2023 will be posted soon.
