Statements from Bishop John Quinn Concerning our Diocese and COVID-19


The sacrament of Confirmation is the second of the Sacraments of Initiation. It seals and completes the graces first given in Baptism. In Confirmation a person receives a fuller outpouring of the gifts of the Holy Spirit: wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord.

Confirmation strengthens and prepares us to be miletes Christi, soldiers of Christ, to give witness to Christ and live according to His Law.
