The sacrament of Confirmation deepens the graces and the blessings of the Holy Spirit received at Baptism. Through Confirmation a person is strengthened anew by the Holy Spirit to live out the Christian life more fully. In the Diocese of London, Confirmation is ordinarily celebrated with children who are in Grade 7 or 8, who have completed an immediate sacramental preparation program where the child’s sacraments will be celebrated.  

The goal of Confirmation Preparation “should aim at leading the Christian toward a more intimate union with Christ and a more lively familiarity with the Holy Spirit in order to be more capable of assuming the apostolic responsibilities of Christian life. To this end catechesis for Confirmation should strive to awaken a sense of belonging to the Church of Jesus Christ, the universal Church, as well as the parish community” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 1309).
