Confirmation

Confirmation deepens our relationship with Jesus and confirms us to live the Christian life by giving us the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Confirmation is usually conferred by a bishop during a special ceremony. The Bishop anoints the sacred oil of chrism on the forehead of each Confirmande. With the laying of the hands, the candidates are then invited to go out into the world, just as the Apostles did, with the Holy Spirit in their hearts.
