What is Confirmation?

Confirmation is one of the seven sacraments through which Catholics pass in the process of their religious upbringing.  It is the Sacrament that completes your initiation into the Catholic Church. According to Catholic doctrine, in this sacrament they are sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit and are strengthened in their Christian life. This strength will help you to be a disciple in the world and to become a more active member of the Church. 

Laying of Hands & Anointing

The laying of hands signifies the descent of the Holy Spirit. The anointing of the confirmand, the person being confirmed, with chrism, an aromatic oil that has been consecrated by the bishop is  accompanied by the words “Be sealed with the Gift of the Holy Spirit.” This seal is a consecration, representing the safeguarding by the Holy Spirit of the graces conferred on the Christian at Baptism.

The Gifts of the Holy Spirit

The seven gifts of the Holy Spirit— Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude, Knowledge, Piety, Fear of the Lord are enumerated in Isaiah 11:2-3. Infused with His gifts, we respond to the promptings of the Holy Spirit as if by instinct, the way Christ Himself would.
