Baptism and Confirmation Vocation
In Groups You are a group, team, gang or organisation and they are new members who would like to join. In our groups come up with an initiation for these members to go through.
Can you think of the initiation that we go through to become a member of the Catholic church? Baptism and Confirmation are two of the three sacraments of initiation. Most people are baptised when they are babies, so the decision and vows are made for them. As young adults you are offered the choice yourself and you renew your baptismal vows
The anointing with Chrism that takes place in Confirmation also strengthens you for your work as a young Christian adult. Confirmation also deepens our baptism because in confirmation we are given a task a vocation.
We are called to be witnesses to the gospel and servants of all we meet in our daily lives. Confirmation is our way of saying yes to God and our vocation
