Application for Sacrament of Confirmation

 

 
Confirmation is one of the sacraments of Christian initiation along with Baptism and the Eucharist. Confirmation completes the grace received at Baptism. Through it, the candidates are more united to the church and are given a special strength from the Holy Spirit to be witnesses of Jesus Christ. 
In Baptism, the childís parents promised for them. But in Confirmation, the young person makes the decision on their own to say "yes".
The Sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated by the Bishop or a priest and is conferred by the laying on of hands followed by the anointing in the form of a cross on the forehead with chrism (perfumed oil consecrated by the Bishop).
