Confirmation is one of the seven Sacraments of the Church. Together with Baptism and the Eucharist it is a Sacrament of Initiation. At Confirmation the candidate is sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit and confirms the faith one has received at Baptism and has inherited from the parents and the Godparents.

In the Diocese of Westminster it is recommended that the candidates are at least 14 years of age (School Year: Year 9) therefore anyone younger than that will be asked to wait until he or she has reached the suitable age.

The course runs from September to May with the Sacrament being conferred at the Westminster Cathedral.
