2 THE SACRAMENT OF CONFIRMATION Confirmation is one of the Sacraments of initiation into the Church, together with Baptism and Eucharist. Confirmation completes the face of Baptism by a special outpouring of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, which seal or confirm the baptized in union with Christ. Confirmation equips the confirmed for active participation in the worship and apostolic life of the church. (CCC 1284). THE CONFIRMATION RITE The Confirmation Rite is the ceremony by which a Bishop, or Priest delegated by the Bishop, confers the Sacrament of Confirmation on a baptized person. After invoking the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, the Bishop extends his hands over the whole group of confirmands as a symbol of the coming of the Spirit. Then he traces a cross on the person s forehead with the blessed oil, called Chrism. At the same time, he calls the person by his name (either baptismal or Confirmation name) and says, Be sealed with the Gift of the Holy Spirit. The sing of peace concludes the rite and demonstrates communion with the bishop and with all the faithful when he says, Peace be with you. (CCC ). 2

MEMORARE Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection Implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided.

O Mother of the Word Incarnate, Despise not my petitions, but in your mercy hear and answer me. Amen. ST. AUGUSTINE S PRAYER TO THE HOLY SPIRIT Breathe in me, O Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy; Act in me, O Holy Spirit, that I love but what is holy; Strengthen me, O Holy Spirit, to defend all that is holy; Guard me, O Holy Spirit, that I always may be holy.

6 Things that must be completed to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation SERVICE PROJECTS One sure sign of increased maturity is increased responsibility. As people discover that you can be trusted to carry through on your promises, they will begin to count on your help in numerous ways. As you mature in faith, you will discover increased responsibilities in this area of your faith. The question is: How do you put your faith into practice? How often do you go out of your way to help others? Are you creative in finding ways to serve others, as Christ asks us? There are unlimited possibilities for projects of service, depending on how much time you have, where you live, what your interests are and your own ability. The following is a list of projects that would enable you to serve others, free of charge, either by yourself or with others. Look over the projects and check off those which you might consider doing during your preparation for Confirmation. Your teacher should approve any projects not on this list before you begin the project. ADDITIONAL CRETIVE PROJECTS ARE WELCOMED! As you actually take part in each project, be sure to fill in the Self-Accountability Sheet. You are asked to: PICK AT LEAST ONE PROJECT FROM EACH OF THE THREE AREAS GIVEN 1.
