 THE SACRAMENTS OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION

ARTICLE 2
THE SACRAMENT OF CONFIRMATION

1285 Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the "sacraments of Christian initiation," whose unity must be safeguarded. It must be explained to the faithful that the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace.89 For "by the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.   

  • Catechism of the Catholic Church

The Sacrament of Confirmation is usually celebrated at the end of April each year.

A Prayer for an End to Abortion

Heavenly Father,

Spare our nation from the scourge of abortion.

Protect the lives of children in the womb.

Give hope and strength to their mothers.

Stir love in the hearts of fathers to support and cherish mother and child.

Cause our elected leaders and the courts to recognize and protect the person hood of unborn children.

Lift up church leaders to proclaim a Culture of Life.

Lead parents who had abortions to repentance and healing.

Bring about the conversion of the abortionist, of those who deny the birthright of children and those who are indifferent.

Grant me the courage and energy to be a Defender of Life.

I ask this through my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.march for life at church 3

We, at St. Helena Catholic Church, are concerned with educating, directing, and sustaining all who visit. 

In particular those who draw near to the teachings and traditions of Holy Mother Church. 

We strive to achieve this by utilizing the Cardinal Virtues of Justice, Prudence, Temperance and Fortitude.
