Confirmation is one of the seven sacraments instituted by Jesus. Through Confirmation one becomes the witness of Christ. Confirmation perfects and completes our baptism. In Baptism, one receives the Holy Spirit as the source of new life in Christ. Whereas, in the sacrament of Confirmation; the Holy Spirit comes with a special mission, with a fresh out-pouring of his gifts. The gifts of the Holy Spirit makes the confirmed courageous and bear witness to the Gospel.



In the Latin rite, the sacrament of Confirmation is conferred through the anointing with Chrism on the forehead, which is done by the laying on of the hand and through the words, “Be sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit.”


At 4.30pm, the parish priest Fr Maxim D’Souza along with the confirmation candidates and parishioners accorded a warm welcome to Fr Ronald Serrao.
