Introduction to the Sacrament of Confirmation
At St. Michael Catholic Church in Worthington OH, we believe in the power of the sacraments to strengthen our faith and deepen our connection to God. Confirmation is one of the seven sacraments, through which individuals are initiated into full membership in the Church. This sacred ritual is a significant milestone in the faith journey of every Catholic.
The Significance of Confirmation
Confirmation is the sacrament where individuals receive the full outpouring of the Holy Spirit, strengthening them with the gifts necessary to live as true disciples of Jesus Christ. By confirming their baptismal promises, candidates for confirmation publicly profess their faith and commit to a life of continued spiritual growth and service to others.
Embracing the Holy Spirit
During the sacrament of Confirmation, candidates are anointed with sacred chrism oil, a ancient symbol of the presence of the Holy Spirit. This anointing empowers individuals with gifts such as wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord. These gifts enable Catholics to live faithfully, pursue holiness, and actively participate in the mission of the Church.
Preparation for Confirmation
At St. Michael Catholic Church, we recognize the importance of thorough preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation.

Confidently Growing in Faith
Confirmation is a personal journey that involves not only the candidates but also their families, sponsors, and the entire faith community. Together, we provide support and guidance as candidates prepare to receive the sacrament. Through prayer, study, reflection, and participation in the sacramental life of the Church, we cultivate a faith that is vibrant, rooted in tradition, and open to the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
