Confirmation is the second sacrament of initiation. Through the Sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. It is sealing of the baptism. In the Diocese of Gaylord, the sacrament of Confirmation is conferred upon children prior to First Communion during the Easter Season. For adults who have been baptized in the Catholic Church but have not been confirmed, there is a time of preparation prior to the celebration of the sacrament of Confirmation.
Confirmation can be conferred upon children (7 years old and older) or adults. Families of children seeking Confirmation are asked to enroll in the Sacrament Process and Family Faith Formation program. Contact the Director of Religious Education for further information.
Adults who wish to become members of the Catholic Church are encouraged to enroll in RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults).
