Application for Sacrament of Confirmation
Confirmation is one of the sacraments of Christian initiation along
with Baptism and the Eucharist. Confirmation completes the grace
received at Baptism. Through it, the candidates are more united to
the church and are given a special strength from the Holy Spirit to
be witnesses of Jesus Christ.
Baptism, the childís parents promised for them. But in Confirmation,
the young person makes the decision on their own to say "yes".
Sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated by the Bishop or a priest and is
conferred by the laying on of hands followed by the anointing in the
form of a cross on the forehead with chrism (perfumed oil
consecrated by the Bishop).
