Have you ever felt you were on the periphery of a joyous group of people and wished you could be gathered up into the center of them? There are adult parishioners who have experienced this sense of separateness and longing. Though baptized as Catholics who also received First Eucharist and attend weekly Mass, they have not been Confirmed. Confirmation is a Sacrament of Initiation, the other two being Baptism and First Communion. Confirmation strengthens the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit received at Baptism thus strengthening the graces received at Baptism. It is the full outpouring of the Holy Spirit as once granted the Apostles on the day of Pentecost. If you feel called to complete your initiation into your adult Catholic faith, St. Vincent’s offers adult classes.
Contact RoseMarie Woodruff at 762-4278 ext 14. Adult Confirmation is usually received at the Easter Vigil.
