CCC 1316 Confirmation perfects Baptismal grace; it is the sacrament which gives the Holy Spirit in order to root us more deeply in the divine filiation, incorporate us more firmly into Christ, strengthen our bond with the Church, associate us more closely with her mission, and help us bear witness to the Christian faith in words accompanied by deeds.
The Restored Order
The Archdiocese of Denver is in the process of restoring the order of the Sacraments of Initiation. These three sacraments are originally intended to be received in this order: Baptism, Confirmation then Holy Eucharist. The sacrament that fully initiates a person into the Catholic Church is Holy Eucharist (First Communion).
For the 2017-18 year, LOTW will be fully participating in the Restored Order of the Sacraments of Initiation: 2nd Graders will receive their First Reconciliation. 3rd Graders will receive their Confirmation and First Eucharist. For more information on the Restored Order visit saintsdenver.com or contact Jan, Gayle or Sherwood in the Parish office.
To watch a video about the Restored Order and to read the Pastoral Letter "Saints Among Us" from Archbishop Aquila please visit www.Archden.org/Saints.
