What is Confirmation?
Confirmation is the sacrament that completes Baptism; In it the gift of the Holy Spirit is bestowed upon us.
What happens in Confirmation? The soul of a baptised Christian is imprinted with a permanent seal that can be received only once and marks this indivual forever as a Christian.
To be confirmed means to make a “covenant” with God. The person being confirmed essentially says, “yes, I believe in you, my God; give me your Holy Spirit, so that I might belong entirely to you, and never be separated from you, and may witness to you throughout my whole life, body and soul, in my words and deeds, on good days and bad.”
When do Confirmations take place in Holy Redeemer?
Confirmations usually take place during the month of May on a Saturday in the Main Church.
