"Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the "sacraments of Christian initiation," whose unity must be safeguarded. It must be explained to the faithful that the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. For "by the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed." -Catechism of the Catholic Church, par. 1285
If you are a baptized Catholic who has received First Holy Communion and First Penance (aka Reconciliation or Confession), but have NOT yet received Confirmation and would like to, then please contact the Rectory at 610-678-3767 or Rectory@stignatiusreading.org and ask to speak with a priest.
