Confirmation

"Be Sealed with the Gift of the Holy Spirit."
Confirmation, considered to be the second of the Sacraments of Initiation, is often celebrated last in the United States for Catholics baptized as children.   It is never too late to receive the Grace of this important Sacrament. 

"Confirmation is the sacrament by which those born anew in baptism now receive the seal of the Holy Spirit, the gift of the Father and the Son.  Confirmation, as the sealing of the candidate with the Spirit, is linked with the other sacraments of the Christian Initiation and explain the sealing of the Spirit as preparation for being a witness of a mature Christian life in properly living in the world and extending and defending the faith"-

Apostolic Constitution on the Sacrament of Confirmation (Pope Paul VI)  

SSPJ Confirmation I and II ALL Confirmation classes at SSPJ will be using Dynamic Catholic's Decision Point hosted by Matthew Kelly.
