"In him you who heard the word of truth were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, the first installment of our inheritance toward redemption" (Eph. 2:13-14).
Confirmation is administered by the laying-on of hands and anointing with chrism, accompanied by prayer. The chrism is blessed by the bishop and the bishop administers the sacrament.
All baptized persons can and should be confirmed, since Confirmation is the fulfillment of Baptism and imposes a permanent mark of the Spirit on our soul. It is often seen as the sign of our maturity in the Church and of our ongoing growth in the spiritual life.
Those who wish to receive the sacrament of Confirmation must have completed their sacrament of baptism previously, or plan to complete baptism in conjunction with their confirmation.
Prior to completing this sacrament, the individual must complete a faith formation/RCIA course approved by St. Michael's.
