Confirmation is about TRANSFORMATION not GRADUATION


But you will receive power
when the Holy Spirit comes upon you,
and you will be my witnesses

 in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria,
and to the ends of the earth.

Acts 1:8

WHAT IS CONFIRMATION?
The Sacrament of Confirmation is one of the Sacraments of Initiation
(the others being Baptism & Eucharist), wherein the candidate is anointed by the bishop and therefore recieves a special call to serve Christ in closer unity with Him. The confirmed Christian is empowered by the Holy Spirit to live as a disciple of Christ in the world today & standing up for what the Church teaches.
