St Luke Catholic Church
"Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the "sacraments of Christian initiation," whose unity must be safeguarded. It must be explained to the faithful that the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. For "by the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed."
-- Catechism of the Catholic Church
Confirmation is celebrated before First Holy Communion in the Diocese of Tyler. Generally, First Holy Communion is celebrated at the same Mass as the Sacrament of Confirmation.
Confirmation is held in the Spring for all students prepared through Faith Formation Classes.
Those who are received into Catholic Faith through RCIA are confirmed on Easter Saturday at the Easter Vigil.
