The Sacrament of Confirmation (ROC = Rite of Confirmation) is a FAMILY EVENT. When God comes into a family He transform everything and everybody. So the Sacrament of Confirmation is an open door for the HOLY SPIRIT and we have to prepare for Him.

Parents are the leaders of the family, so they are also the first shepherds of the faith of their children. Our Parish, looking at the catechesis as something for the whole family, offers the parents a REVIEW AND REFRESHER of the faith, so to provide our parents the tools for a christian growth of the whole family.

This year is a very important year for all the members of the family; God is going to transform all those in the family; we want to prepare, so we offer to the parents a similar experience of GROWN IN THE FAITH so that parents and children may grow together and be ready for the coming of the HolY Spirit.
