Confirmation is one of the seven Sacraments that Catholics pass through in the course of their life. In this Sacrament candidates receive the Holy Spirit and become adult members of the Catholic Church.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church states:
Recall then that you have received the spiritual seal, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, 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 the Father has marked you with his sign; Christ the Lord has confirmed you and has placed his pledge, the Spirit, in your heart.
At St Therese of Lisieux, any young person in year 9 or above is eligible to be prepared. If you are an adult who would like to be confirmed this is also possible.
