Confirmation is a Catholic Sacrament of mature Christian commitment and a deepening of baptismal gifts. It is one of the three Sacraments of Initiation for Catholics. It is most often associated with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Confirmation, like the other sacraments of initiation, marks the beginning of a journey toward deeper knowledge of God. Our Confirmation candidates join us in claiming our heritage. For years to come, they will bear witness to what loving and believing people have handed on to them—all in the Spirit of God. Confirmation may be seen as an acceptance of the faith given to the baby in Baptism by a person entering adult life. In the Diocese of Killaloe it is the practice to offer the Sacrament of Confirmation to pupils in their final year of primary school.
