The sacrament of confirmation is found in Bible passages such as Acts 8:14–17, 9:17, 19:6, and Hebrews 6:2, which speak of a laying on of hands for the purpose of bestowing the Holy Spirit.
The purpose of the Sacrament of Confirmation is to be strengthened in the faith and to be anointed with the Holy Spirit. At St. Jude, children are confirmed in beginning of 7th grade.
If you are an adult or a student past 7th grade, please contact the rectory at 215-822-0179 so that we can work toward helping you to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit!
