Sacrament of Confirmation The sacrament of confirmation completes the sacrament of baptism. If baptism is the sacrament of re-birth to a new and supernatural life, confirmation is the sacrament of maturity and coming of age. The real confession of Christ consist in this ‘that the whole man submits himself to Truth, in the judgment of his understanding, in the submission of his will and in the consecration of his whole power of love. To do this, poor-spirited man is only able when he has been confirmed by God’s grace’ This confirmation in the power of the Holy Spirit leading to a firm profession of faith has always been the particular effect which Catholic tradition has ascribed to the sacrament. It is effect which complements and completes that of baptism.
By asking for the Sacrament of Confirmation, it is assumed that the candidate has already celebrated the Sacrament of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist. If the candidate is missing one of these sacraments they should contact the parish office as soon as possible.
