Confirming Your FAITH
Confirmation is a special moment in the faith journey of a Catholic. It could be described as receiving a divine booster from God.
Gifts of the Spirit
Through the words and actions of the priest (often times a bishop) the confirmand receives the spiritual gifts of the Holy Spirit. Combined with a personal commitment to follow the teachings of Jesus and be an active part of the Christian community, it can lead to a better and more spiritual balanced life. Confirmation strengthens the connection to the larger Christian community, giving one a sense of belonging.
Confirmation isn't seen as the end but rather a stepping stone in an ongoing spiritual journey. It encourages continued growth, urging individuals to deepen their connection with the divine and live out their faith in their daily lives.
