The Sacrament of Confirmation confirms and strengthens the grace of baptism. Confirmation is a seal on our soul which strengthens our commitment to the Church. We share in the work of Jesus Christ in the world by the gift of the Spirit. The Spirit marks our belonging to Christ and helps us give witness to our Christian faith before others.
The age for Confirmation varies throughout the Archdiocese of Newark. At St. Elizabeth's Confirmation is celebrated during high school years. Requirements for Confirmation candidacy:
1. Candidates are high school students.
2. Candidates are registered parishioners.
3. Candidates have had continuous and sequential catechesis in a parish catechetical program or Catholic elementary school.
4. Candidates attend Sunday Liturgy on a regular basis.
Baptized Catholics who have not been confirmed and wish to do so participate in the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) program. The sacrament will be celebrated during the Easter season. Please contact the Parish Center at 201-891-3262.
