Making your First Communion?
Making your Confirmation?

Confirmation is one of the seven sacraments available to Catholics. Catholic parents make the decision to have their child baptised. Confirmation allows a person to make their own decision, that they will be confirmed. A person being confirmed will say that they believe in God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and ask for strength and courage to live as Jesus would want them to and to tell other people about their faith.

Confirmation is a sacrament in which the Holy Spirit is given to those already baptised in order to make them strong and perfect Christians and soldiers of Jesus Christ. At the beginning of the ceremony there is a general imposition of hands, the celebrant prays that the Holy Spirit may come down upon those being confirmed. He then anoints the forehead of each with chrism and finally they receive a special blessing.
