The reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. For by the Sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.
Adults who desire Confirmation should contact the rectory at (914) 779-7345. Confirmation is generally celebrated on a Sunday afternoon in April or May. Students are prepared for Confirmation through Religious Education classes, an all-day retreat and an evening session. Parents are expected to attend 2 scheduled evening sessions. Please see the Religious Education page for this year’s schedule. For more information, please contact the Religious Education Office at (914) 779-2374.
If you have intentions of being a sponsor in the near future, you must be a registered parishioner for at least four months to obtain a Sponsor Certificate. A sponsor certificate is necessary for a person to act as a sponsor for someone who is receiving the sacrament of Baptism or Confirmation.
