“And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them and a tongue rested on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit. ”

(Acts of the Apostles 2:2-4a)


Confirmation completes the Sacrament of Baptism and “seals” those who are baptized with the gift of the Holy Spirit. Confirmation deepens our life in Christ Jesus begun in Baptism, and unites us more closely as living witnesses to Christ and Christ’s mission in the world.

The Gift of the Spirit in Confirmation is bestowed by the laying on of hands and anointing with chrism accompanied by prayer. All baptized persons can and should be confirmed.

Adults who have not been confirmed should contact Beata Bosak at 847-255-9490
or email to b.bosak@stbal.org to prepare for this sacrament.

Parents with children who have never received Confirmation, and are interested in preparing them to receive the sacrament should contact Beata Bosak for enrollment in the Religious Education Program.
