Confirmation is a rite of initiation in Christian churches

Post by jancancook on Thu Mar 24, 2011 7:38 am

Confirmation is a rite of initiation in Christian churches, normally carried out through the laying on of hands and prayer, and possibly also anointing, for the purpose of bestowing the Gifts of the Holy Spirit.

There is an analogous ceremony also called confirmation in Reform Judaism, the most theologically liberal denomination within Judaism.

Within Christianity, confirmation is seen as the sealing of the covenant made in Holy Baptism. In some denominations, confirmation also bestows full membership in a local congregation upon the recipient. In others, such as the Roman Catholic Church, confirmation "renders the bond with the Church more perfect",[1] because a baptized person is already a full member.[2]
