“Confirmation is the means by which the Holy Spirit is poured out upon the baptised candidate, just as the Holy Spirit was given to the apostles at Pentecost….The Holy Spirit draws the candidate closer to Christ. The Holy Spirit also strengthens the person to live as a witness of Christ:”   ~  Springer, 2011 p40


In the Sydney Archdiocese, the sacrament of Confirmation is conferred upon a child in year 6. The candidate should be turning 11 years of age or older in the year in which they are to be Confirmed.

Each candidate nominates a sponsor who is a Confirmed and practising Catholic over the age of 16 years. The role of the sponsor is to provide spiritual guidance and support to the candidate and present the candidate to the Bishop for anointing on the day of Confirmation. Each candidate must choose a Catholic Saints name for their Confirmation name. The chosen saint should be someone the candidate admires for their deeds or qualities.
