Sacraments | Confirmation
Confirmation, along with the Sacraments of Baptism and Eucharist, constitute the Sacraments of Initiation. The Sacrament of Confirmation is imparted with two sacred signs: the laying on of hands and the anointing with the oil of Chrism. These signs set the seal of the Holy Spirit upon us which marks our total belonging to Christ.
