Confirmation: Anointed and Sealed with the Spirit is a confirmation program for Catholic parishes.

Utilizing the central symbols of the Rite of Confirmation, this book provides eight blessings and rituals for use with Confirmation: Anointed and Sealed with the Spirit Leader’s Guide. Half of the rituals are very traditional, while the other half offer a more artistic approach.

In addition, two retreats are designed to lead the candidates into deeper understanding and commitment. Multiple versions of these retreats can be adapted for age appropriate use with younger and older candidates. A valuable tool for the celebration of confirmation.
