At Confirmation the gifts of the Holy Spirit are strengthened, and we confirm our baptismal promises. Greater awareness of the grace of the Holy Spirit is conferred through the anointing of chrism oil and the laying on of hands by the Bishop.  Through the Sacrament of Confirmation we renew our baptismal promises and commit to living a life of maturity in the Christian faith. While baptism is the sacrament of new life, confirmation gives birth to that life.
