The Sacrament of Confirmation is the final Sacrament of Christian Initiation. Those who receive the Sacrament are empowered by the gifts of the Holy Spirit, more strongly united with Christ and His Church, and strengthened to be a bold witnesses for Christ. At St. Norbert, our young people receive the Sacrament in 8th grade following a time of preparation.
