“Now when the apostles at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent to them Peter and John, who came down and prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit; for it had not yet fallen on any of them, but they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then they laid their hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit”
Confirmation perfects Baptismal grace; it is the sacrament which gives the Holy Spirit in order to root us more deeply in the divine filiation, incorporate us more firmly into Christ, strengthen our bond with the Church, associate us more closely with her mission, and help us bear witness to the Christian faith in words accompanied by deeds.
How can I Prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation?
- Contact the Parish Office at +6082-578857.
- Typically, teenagers will have to attend Sunday School for a couple of years before they are confirmed at the age of 16 years old. Adults who wish to be confirmed will need to undergo special instructions. This can be arranged with the parish.
