Those who were baptized in infancy continue on their journey toward full Christian initiation through the Sacrament of Confirmation. In this sacrament, the confirmandi ratify their baptismal promises, "are enriched by the gift of the Holy Spirit...[and the sacrament] strengthens them and obliges them more firmly to be witnesses to Christ by word and deed and to spread and defend the faith" (Canon #879).
In St. Clement we now celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation every year. We had our last confirmation in May 2017 and this school year of 2018-2019 will be a Confirmation preparation year. Students need to have 2 consecutive years of preparation and be 16 at the time they receive the sacrament. If you have any questions please contact our Youth Coordinator Ester Velazquez at the parish office.
