Confirmation FAQ

What is Confirmation?

Baptism, the Eucharist, and the Sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the “sacraments of Christian initiation,” whose unity must be safeguarded. It must be explained to the faithful, that the reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace (CCC 1285).

Why should I be Confirmed?

Through Confirmation, the grace of Baptism is strengthened¬†within us. In Baptism, we are made sharers of Christ’s mission. In Confirmation, we receive the strength that we need to carry out that mission.

What are the gifts of the Holy Spirit?

In Confirmation, we receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit: Wisdom, Understanding, Fortitude, Knowledge, Piety, and Fear of the Lord.

What are the requirements for being a sponsor?

A sponsor must be a practicing Catholic over 16 years of age who has received Baptism, Confirmation, and First Eucharist. The sponsor can be a different person than the one chosen as the godparent, but ideally should be the same person.
