Baptized Catholics are enriched and strengthened in their faith through the celebration of the sacrament of confirmation. The sacrament of confirmation allows the new life of faith, which was first received at baptism, to grow and mature by the outpouring of the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Ordinarily, the bishop administers the sacrament of confirmation by the laying on of hands, anointing the candidate on the forehead with sacred chrism, and offering the prayer for the outpouring of seven gifts of the Holy Spirit. The grace of this sacrament strengthens Catholics to carry out their baptismal call to become witnesses to our Catholic faith.
