On Tuesday, April 23rd, 15 young people received the Sacrament of Confirmation by Bishop Robert Harris. Confirmation is one of the seven sacraments of the Catholic Church. It is also one of the three sacraments of initiation. The other two being Baptism and Holy Communion.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church states:
Recall then that you have received the spiritual seal, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding and courage, the spirit of right judgment and courage, the spirit of knowledge and reverence, the Spirit of holy fear in God’s presence. Guard what you have received. God our Father has marked you with his sign; Christ the Lord has confirmed you and has placed his pledge, the Spirit, in your heart.
