Confirmation is an important part of our faith journey. It is closely linked to the Biblical practice of ‘laying on of hands’, when hands were placed in prayer on the heads of Christian believers. During the Confirmation the Bishop places his hands on the candidate’s head and prays that the Holy Spirit, received at Baptism, will release in the candidate the gifts needed to serve the Church and the world. This is a way of confirming and taking on responsibility for the vows made on the candidate’s behalf at infant baptism by parents and Godparents.In churches all across the Diocese young people and adults of all ages are choosing to demonstrate their faith to the church and to their friends by being confirmed.
