What is confirmation?

Confirmation is a special church service in which a person confirms the promises made when they were baptized.

Children are often baptized when they are very young and their parents and godparents make these promises on their behalf.

As a young person or adult, many people decide to reconfirm these promises for themselves and live a life by following Jesus Christ.

Friends and family as well as the local Christian community are often present as a promise to support.

The bishop lays his hand on the young man's head and asks God's Holy Spirit to give them the strength and dedication to live God's way for the rest of their lives.
