Gift of the Holy Spirit

Confirmation is a sacrament instituted by Christ and different from baptism. It is administered by laying-on of hands and anointing with chrism accompanied by prayer. This sacrament deepens our baptismal life that calls us to be missionary witnesses of Jesus Christ in our families, neighborhoods, society, and the world. Confirmation formation at Holy Spirit is a two-year process:

• Confirmation Year 1 is for Candidates in the 7th & 8th grades.
• Confirmation Year 2 is for Candidates who have completed Year 1 or are in the 9th-12th grades.
