Reflection to Prepare for Confirmation
as a sacrament of initiation.
Confirmation is linked to Baptism and Eucharist
Confirmation is part of our initiation into the faith community
Confirmation honors the spiritual nature of the individual
Each of you is a Son and Daughter of God because of your faith in Christ Jesus. All of you who have been baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with him. There does not exist among you Jew or Greek, slave or freeman, male or female. All are one in Christ Jesus. Furthermore, if you belong to Christ you are the descendants of Abraham, which means you inherit all that was promised. (Galatians, 3:26-29)
How has Baptism shaped your life?
With your Candidate
Celebrate the anniversary if his or her Baptism by remembering it in a special way - with a card, a special meal, a prayer with the family, a simple gift.
Share how your Baptism has made a difference in your life.
Pray for family members, pray together for the young people in the Confirmation prep program.
Find ten other people who will pray for your candidate during the preparation program. Ask them to write notes to your candidate.
