The Sacrament of Confirmation is the second of the three Sacraments of Initiation. Confirmation is a a deepening of our commitment as Catholics that was started at baptism and is most often associated with the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
The Sacrament of Confirmation completes (or confirms) the sacrament of Baptism. It reaffirms the strength and commitment to follow Jesus.
Children are eligible to receive Confirmation if they have been baptised a Catholic and are at least 7 years of age.
For those who are not yet baptised or received into the Catholic Church
The preparation for this is usually through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA), for more information contact Fr Michael Brady.
