The Sacrament of Confirmation will be celebrated in our parish on October 26.  About 140 children will be confirmed.  The standard age of Confirmation is going to be third grade throughout the Diocese of Manchester, and Confirmation will be celebrated before, not after, First Communion.  This practice restores Confirmation to its original place. Through this process, the three Sacraments of Christian Initiation return to the original order in which they were designed to be received: first Baptism, then Confirmation, then Eucharist. For more information please click link to Bishop Libasci’s Pastoral Letter Call to Hope, Call to Act.
