The Sacrament of Confirmation

God strengthens our souls also through the Sacrament of Confirmation. Even though Jesus' disciples recieved grace before his Resurrection, on Pentecost the Holy Spirit came to strengthen them with new graces for the difficult work ahead. Then they went out and preached the Gospel fearlessly and carried out the mission Christ had given them. Later, they laid hands on others to stregthen them as well (Acts 8:14-17). Through Confirmation you too are stregthened to meet the spiritual challenges in your life.

The Sacrament of Confirmation completes our Baptismal graces, and fully initiates us into the discipleship of Christ and His Church.  Our hope is that sacramental formation within our Parish will prepare our youth to receive all the graces the Holy Spirit wants to give them.

It is critical that our youth are adequately prepared to receive the abundant graces found in the Sacrament of Confirmation.  Please call  +234 8139059643 or  +234 7098820982 for more information regarding Confirmation at Church of the Presentation.
