The meaning of Confirmation

Faith begun at Baptism and has continued to mature and develop in our lives.  Confirmation completes this initiation process in becoming a member of the Church; a Christian called to play a part in revealing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to our world.  Confirmation completes what has begun at Baptism with the gift of the Holy Spirit.  Confirmation is a sacrament of growth in the Holy Spirit.

The Spirit guides us

Confirmation goes back to that first experience of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit came down on the apostles in the upper room.  It directed and guided them in the continuing mission of Jesus.  Confirmation is our own Pentecost, so that each can play his or her part in assisting the spread of the message of Christ.

Confirmation is a unique experience, an individual and personal invitation to accept the gifts of the Holy Spirit.  This day will carry memories and is one we can look back on as our faith emerges and continues to grow.

It is important to remember that the same Spirit guides us to a mature, committed and active disciple of Jesus.
