Sacrament of Confirmation

[This Sacrament] is called Confirmation because it confirms and strengthens baptismal grace

§266, Compendium, Catechism of the Catholic Church

The essential rite of Confirmation is the anointing with Sacred Chrism (oil mixed with balsam and consecrated by the bishop), which is done by the laying on of the hand of the minister who pronounces the sacramental words “be sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit” as he anoints the confirmand’s forehead.

Adults who for whatever reason have not received the Sacrament of Confirmation, as well as those who seek to be Received into the Catholic Church, are requested to contact the Parish Office.
