I will give you a new heart and place a new Spirit within you…
The Sacrament of Confirmation is part of the initiation process into the Catholic Community. Through the Sacrament, you are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Although you may have been baptized Catholic years ago, Duke’s Confirmation Program provides the opportunity for you to complete your initiation by preparing for and celebrating fully the Sacrament of Confirmation. Anointed with oil and sealed with the Holy Spirit, you are strengthened to meet the challenges of the world and bring the love, hope and peace of Jesus Christ to those in need.
Confirmation is for you if …
- You have been baptized into the Catholic faith and have already received the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist (or First Communion).
- You desire to complete the initiation process into the Catholic community and to strengthen and deepen your faith.
- You seek to put faith into action by being a Christian witness to others.
The Duke Catholic Center Confirmation Program is available throughout the year. You will be paired with a catechist to meet one-on-one around your schedule. Confirmation is celebrated each spring at Sacred Heart Cathedral in Raleigh. Contact Peter Arcidiacono, our Confirmation Coordinator.
