On the 27 of May there will be confirmation in St. Olav parish. To ensure that there will be room for everyone we have borrowed The Church of Our Lady (Vår Frue kirke) in the centre of Trondheim, as we have done earlier years. All who are going to be confirmed must meet for practice sessions on Wednesday 23. May at 6 pm - 7 pm and Saturday 26. May at 3 pm - 4:30 pm.

Confirmation is an important sacrament. The following is a summary of a much longer article from Wikipedia:

In The Catholic Church, confirmation is seen as one of the seven sacraments. Confirmation marks the soul permanently and cannot be repeated.

Confirmation is founded on the practice as described in The New Testament, and was first performed on the first Christians.

The expression "ferme" (from Latin firmare, to strengthen) may also be used, Confirmation is seen as an addition to baptism and is carried out by anointing with holy oil and laying on of hands.

We congratulate all our young people ready to receive this sacrament and ask God's blessing over their lives.
