Although many receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in their early teenage years, long after they have already received First Communion (Holy Eucharist), Confirmation is considered the second Sacrament of Initiation.

In some writings, Confirmation is considered to be the “perfecting” of the Baptism, in that the Baptized are “more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit.

Sacrament of Confirmation: Parent Meeting.

 The Sacrament of Confirmation will be celebrated on June 17th 2022 at St Stephen’s Parish. The Confirmation candidates are usually from the ages of 12 to 15. There will be a meeting for parents of youth 12-15 who do not attend Father Lacombe Catholic School. The meeting will be at St Gregory the Great Catholic School in Blackfalds on Monday May 9th @ 7pm.
If you are not between the ages of 12 to 15, and wish to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation, please contact the parish office.
