CONFIRMATION OF SCHOOL AGE CHILDREN
Archbishop Smith will grant delegation to Pastors to confer the sacrament of Confirmation. It would be important to give time for sacramental preparation to proceed. Parishes may require a number of masses to celebrate Confirmation, again following the limit of people set by the provincial guidelines.”

Although many receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in their early teenage years, long after they have already received First Communion (Holy Eucharist), Confirmation is considered the second Sacrament of Initiation.

In some writings, Confirmation is considered to be the “perfecting” of the Baptism, in that the Baptized are “more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit.
