The Catechism describes Confirmation as a deepening of baptismal gifts. It says that the sacrament roots us more deeply in our identity as God's children; unites us more firmly with Christ; increases in us the gifts of the Holy Spirit; binds us more closely to the Church and gives us special strength to bear witness to our faith. Confirmation shapes us as Catholic Christians.
During confirmation class, confirmands learn about the meaning of Catholic faith; the history and teachings of the Catholic Church and an explanation of the vows they will be professing.
DECISION POINT is the first Confirmation program specifically developed to engage young Catholics in a meaningful conversation about the genius of Catholicism. It teaches and inspires teens to respond to God’s grace, and it’s changing hundreds of thousands of young lives. Today, DECISION POINT is the most used Confirmation program in America.
