Confirmation

Preparing for Confirmation Come Holy Spirit.

The Sacrament of Confirmation confirms the presence of the Holy Spirit in each one of us. The word 'confirmation' comes from the two root words - 'to firm up' and 'in community'.

In the sacrament of Confirmation, in the presence of your family and your parish community, you are confirmed in your role as a witness to Christ in the world today.

The Sacrament of Confirmation is one of the seven sacraments - baptism, confirmation, Eucharist, penance, anointing of the sick, marriage and holy orders.

Confirmation, focuses is on the Holy Spirit, who confirmed the apostles on Pentecost and gave them courage to practice their faith. We believe that the Holy Spirit confirms us during the Sacrament of Confirmation and gives us the same gifts as the apostles.

The seven gifts of the Holy Spirit are wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude (courage), knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord. The 12 fruits of the Holy Spirit are charity, joy, peace, patience, benignity, goodness, long-suffering, mildness, faith, modesty, continency, and chastity - human qualities that can be activated by the Holy Spirit.

To help prepare you and your family for your Confirmation, the three part 'Come Holy Spirit' video series below have been created to guide and explain the importance of this sacrament and the responsibilities and gifts that it brings.

We hope they are helpful.
