The meaning of the Sacrament of Confirmation lies in the original meaning of the Latin word confirmare – to strengthen. In confirmation a person is strengthened or renewed by prayer and the laying-on of hands by the Bishop. Confirmation takes place in a person's life when it becomes important to confirm baptismal promises made on their behalf as an infant. It is a time when a person makes their own solemn commitment to the Christian faith.
If you wish to be confirmed, you will be asked to attend a series of instructional gatherings, attend church regularly, find an area of ministry within the parish that you can fulfil, and choose a sponsor to present you to the Bishop. Different courses of instruction are provided for young people and adults. Please contact the priest for details.
