The sacrament of Confirmation impresses a character and by it the baptized, continuing
on the path of Christian initiation, are enriched by the gift of the Holy Spirit and
bound more perfectly to the Church; it strengthens them and obliges them more firmly to
be witnesses to Christ by word and deed and to spread and defend the faith (Canon Law, CIC can. 879).
Confirmation will be celebrated on Thursday, March 9 at 6:30pm with Bishop Karl Kemme.
