Confirmation

In the Sacrament of Confirmation, initiation in the Christian life is completed so that believers are strengthened by the power of the Holy Spirit to live a life that bear witness to Christ in word and deed. The Sacrament of Confirmation is conferred through the profession of faith, the laying on of hands, and anointing with Chrism.
 
In the Archdiocese of St. Paul/Minneapolis, the normative age for the celebration of Confirmation is 16 years of age or older. The celebration of this Sacrament usually takes place at the Cathedral of St. Paul, enhancing the understanding of this Sacrament as grace given and received by the broader Catholic Church.
