The Sacrament of Confirmation in the Archdiocese of Omaha instills greater appreciation of sacramental life and fosters a sense of charity through an increased desire for a life in relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. This sacrament seals the gift of the Holy Spirit to the confirmed, binding that person to God and his Son, Jesus Christ, and strengthening Catholic faith.
Parents are key to the sacramental preparations for their child – guiding them, with the help of your parish, and presenting their child for the Sacrament of Confirmation that is presided by Archbishop Lucas. When your parish is ready to schedule the Confirmation Mass, review the preparation process for Planning for Confirmation with the Archbishop. If you are interested in learning more about the process and instruction, take a look at the Guidelines for the Sacrament of Confirmation in the Archdiocese of Omaha.
Confirmation isn’t limited to our youth. The archdiocese invites adults who were baptized but never confirmed in the Catholic Church and potential converts to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation through parish-based instruction.
