“The seven gifts of the Holy Spirit are wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord. They belong in their fullness to Christ, Son of David. They complete and perfect the virtues of those who receive them. They make the faithful docile in readily obeying divine inspirations.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1831)
The Holy Spirit has gifts to give in all the sacraments. Confirmation is the completion of the rite of initiation into the Catholic Church. Prep classes for this sacrament are held in the spring. For more information about Confirmation Preparation, please contact Mrs. C. Hutson (705-840-3400) or the Parish Office.
