Confirmation is the second Sacrament of Christian Initiation

Confirmation and First Communion

The Bishop, as leader of the diocesan Church community (or his delegate) administers confirmation.  Through the Laying on of Hands and Anointing with Chrism our baptismal commitment is confirmed.  Through the gifts of the Holy Spirit – wisdom and understanding, counsel and fortitude, knowledge, piety and fear of the Lord – we are strengthened to live more truly and responsibly as disciples of Jesus and members of the Church committed to pursuing the mission of Jesus today.
