Confirmation is a Sacrament in which we seek to be strengthened by the Holy Spirit. In many respects it is a follow-up to our Baptism as the Confirmand makes a statement of his or her faith to the Bishop. The Bishop will then lay their hands on the Confirmand and ask God to send down the Holy Spirit. Confirmation is usually done only after the Confrimand has gone through a series of classes to ensure that their faith is well developed.
