“Now when the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God, they sent them Peter and John, who went down and prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Spirit, for it had not yet fallen upon any of them; they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then they laid hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit.”

Confirmation is the third Sacrament of Initiation and provides an indelible spiritual mark on the soul, enabling a person to be a stronger witness for Jesus through a lifetime of worship, prayer, and service. They are marked with the character or seal of the Lord in such a way that the Sacrament of Confirmation cannot be repeated.
Confirmation for Holy Trinity parishioners is usually celebrated in the eighth grade for the students who have been enrolled and actively participating in our religious education program continuously from K-8 grades. In addition, parent(s) or legal guardian(s), candidates, and their sponsors are to attend and participate in the Sacramental preparation sessions, parish and community service projects, Confirmation retreat and rehearsal.
