Confirmation

In the Sacrament of Confirmation, a candidate is sealed by the Holy Spirit and is given particular strength to live the Christian life.

As in Baptism, candidates are anointed in this sacrament and are called “to spread and defend the Faith both by word and by deed as true witnesses of Christ.”1 To strengthen them for this battle, those who are confirmed receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit during their Confirmation: wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord.

For information on Confirmation preparation for children through the 8th grade, contact Religious Education Director Donna Stachulski at (313)274-4500. Older children and adults seeking preparation to receive the sacrament should contact Deacon Jerry Schiffer at the same number or by e-mail deaconjerry@stlinusparish.org.
