At Confirmation we receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit and confirm our baptismal promises. Greater awareness of the grace of the Holy Spirit is conferred through the anointing of chrism oil and the laying on of hands by the Bishop. We are sealed with the gifts of the Holy Spirit initiated in us at Baptism and made soldiers of Christ to defend and promote the faith.
