What is Confirmation?

Confirmation is one of the 7 Sacraments of the Catholic Church. Together with Baptism and Eucharist is makes up one saving event called – Christian Initiation. So whenever it is received, through the grace of the Holy Spirit, it completes and perfects the gift of the Spirit given at Baptism. Through the ancient symbols of of the laying on of hands and the oil of Chrism, the confirmand is given strength, through the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, to live what they were born to be – a disciple of Jesus Christ.

We will begin the 2019 Confirmation course at SPEC retreat centre in Pinner on 12th January. Please see dates list for more information.
