Together with Baptism and the Eucharist, Confirmation forms a single saving event – called “Christian initiation” – in which we are inserted into Jesus Christ, who died and rose, and become new creatures and members of the Church.
For this reason, it is important to take care that our children, our young people, receive this sacrament. We all take care that they are baptized and this is good, but perhaps we do not take so much care to ensure that they are confirmed. Thus they remain at midpoint in their journey and do not receive the Holy Spirit, who is so important in the Christian life since he gives us the strength to go on.
Excerpts from the general audience of Pope Francis, January 2014
Confirmation for children at Our Lady of the Angels is conducted in Term 3 for all those in Year 6 or older.
