Fr Charles (Parish Priest)
Confirmation, like Baptism, is a sacrament of initiation carried out through anointing, the laying on of hands, and prayer. Through the sacrament of Confirmation the faithful are more perfectly bound to the Church and are strengthened through the Holy Spirit.
According to Catholic doctrine, the sacrament of Confirmation is seen as the sealing of the covenant created in Holy Baptism and strengthened in their Christian life.
God our Father has marked you with his sign; Christ the Lord has confirmed you and has placed his pledge, the Spirit, in your heart.
