Confirmation is the sacrament which completes the process of initiation into the Catholic Church. It is undertaken when a Christian is sufficiently mature to take the step into full membership of the Church. The sacrament is a gifting with the power of the Spirit to love. The Spirit is symbolised in two ways – the laying on of hands and praying for the Spirit’s power, and being sealed with the oil of chrism to strengthen the new member to live out his or her Christian calling.
