Church of the Magdalen Confirmation Program
"But you will receive power when the holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses
in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” -Acts 1:8
Dear Parish Family,
Welcome to the Church of the Magdalen Confirmation program. We are excited to journey with your family and your teen towards the Sacrament of Confirmation. This is truly a special time of spiritual formation for those to be Confirmed; one that we hope will strengthen your entire family.
What exactly happens at the Sacrament of Confirmation?
"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 879
All students in grades 9-12 that have not yet received the sacrament of Confirmation should do so.

Parents, as you continue ministering to your family, your parish and the community, we ask you to be especially faithful in these areas: Attend Sunday Liturgy and Holy Days of Obligation, Support a parish ministry with the gift of your time and be true to the Biblical call to tithe. In addition to worshiping at the Church of the Magdalen, your family has the opportunity to give your time, talent and treasure to the many ministries this faith community has to offer. Opportunities to participate are not restricted to Youth Ministry or Confirmation, but include all parish ministries such as Adult Faith Formation, RCIA, Religious Education, to name a few. It is your example that will have the greatest impact on the faith of your child.
