Photo Essay: Confirmation at St. Rita’s School for the Deaf
In the Catholic Church, the Sacrament of Confirmation provides an outpouring of Grace from the Holy Spirit – the same outpouring of Grace the 12 Apostles received on Pentecost. Contained within this outpouring of Grace are gifts from the Holy Spirit: Wisdom, Knowledge, Right Judgment, Understanding, Courage, Piety, and Fear of the Lord (Respect for God). Confirmation provides the strength to individuals to live their lives as a witness to the Faith out in the world.
In Today’s Photo Essay, Archbishop Dennis Schnurr visited St. Rita’s School for the Deaf to confer the Sacrament of Confirmation during a special Mass.
