The Sacrament of Confirmation
Confirmación is a significant sacrament within the Catholic Church, and at McCormick Road Baptist Church, we believe in celebrating this important milestone in the journey of faith. Confirmation is a sacrament of initiation, which, along with baptism and communion, completes the process of welcoming individuals into full membership in the Church.
During the Sacrament of Confirmation, individuals receive the gift of the Holy Spirit and are strengthened in their faith. It is a time to affirm one's commitment to living a Christian life and to deepen the connection to God and the Church. At McCormick Road Baptist Church, we recognize the importance of this sacrament and offer a supportive and nurturing environment for individuals to prepare for and receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.
Who is Saint Raymond of Peñafort?
As a part of our confirmation program, we explore the life and teachings of Saint Raymond of Peñafort, a renowned Spanish Dominican friar and canon lawyer. Saint Raymond is known for his contributions to the legal system of the Catholic Church, particularly his work in codifying canon law. He dedicated his life to promoting justice and fostering harmony within the Church.
Saint Raymond of Peñafort's commitment to his faith, his deep knowledge of canon law, and his dedication to the well-being of the Church make him an inspiring figure for those preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation. Through learning about his life, individuals gain insight into the importance of faith and the role they can play in building a strong and vibrant Church community.
