The Sacrament of Confirmation consists of a prayer to the Holy Spirit, the laying of hands while a prayer is said and the anointing of the candidate with chrism.  The anointing of the candidates at Confirmation is a sign of confirming the gift of the Spirit, and calling the candidates to become involved in the life and mission of the community. (‘Becoming Catholic’, 2014).  Confirmation is the second Sacrament of Initiation. 

During Confirmation preparation, the child chooses a sponsor to support them on their faith journey.  A Confirmation sponsor must be 16 years old, not the parent of the child, a Confirmed Catholic and possibly can be their Godparents from Baptism. 

Symbols of Confirmation include:  oil, the laying on of hands, lighted candles, Confirmation name.
