Confirmands

Confirmation Class  2014

Confirmation Class 2014 is also called by the name of "Confirmands". 

These young men and women have gone through their first "two years" in the Program preparing to receive the sacrament of Confirmation. Through these years of formation, they are introduced to various sacramental rites of the Holy Catholic Church; Their enrollment into the Sacramental formation and acceptance into the program. It is a time of widening their vision and help them discover the The Holy Roman Catholic Church. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtnH_8oKHUw&feature=youtube_gdata_player

It is the misssion of the Church to nourish their faith, and enlighten their hope and translate that into charity.  While it is natural to pursue their dreams and ambitions, together with that, they are challenged to see a bigger picture than what meets the eye; Their senses are widened to see more and beyond any short term interests and goals. 

It is the hope of the Church to see them develop their personal prayer-life, grow with conviction of faith, and to seek their vocation in life. This preparation looks forward to the solemn annoininting of the "Oil of the Chrism".  They receive the free Gift of the Holy Spirit, the same gift given to the Apostles at the first Pentecost, to preach the good news of Jesus to all the corners of the world.

Presently they are in their final stages of completing the program.
