What is the Sacrament of Confirmation?

Receive the Holy Spirit

In Confirmation, Christians receive the power of the Holy Spirit and deepening of their commitment to Christ in building the kingdom of God on earth.

To celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation, a person:

– has reached the age of discretion, which is defined as about the age of seven;
– professes the Catholic faith and desire to receive the sacrament;
– is living their life as a witness to Jesus Christ.

By receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation, the Christian’s relationship with God is made stronger. The Gifts of the Holy Spirit are strengthened: wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord. In this way the Christian is equipped to become a better witness to Christ in the world.

In Confirmation, the Christian becomes more closely united with Christ. With the strengthening of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, the Christian is able to accept greater responsibilities for witnessing Jesus to the world.
