The back of the Confirmation Invitations are blank. The front of the Confirmation Invitations reads: A Confirmation Invitation. Please come to My Confirmation (Spaces for Name, Date, Time, Place, Parents, and Godparents). I sign thee with the sign of the Cross and I Confirm thee with the chrism of salvation in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
The Sacrament of Confirmation is when the Bishop calls down the Holy Spirit on a Catholic baptised person to help them grow in their spiritual walk with Jesus.
The Rite of Confirmation: In the Western Church the Sacrament of Confirmation is administered by the bishop. At the beginning of the ceremony there is a general imposition of hands, the Bishop meantime praying that the Holy Ghost may come down upon those who have already been regenerated: send forth upon them thy sevenfold Spirit the Holy Paraclete. He then anoints the forehead of each with chrism saying: I sign thee with the sign of the cross and confirm thee with the chrism of salvation, in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Finally, he gives each a slight blow on the cheek saying: peace be with thee. A confirmation prayer is added that the Holy Spirit may dwell in the hearts of those who have been confirmed, and the rite closes with the Bishop's blessing. (From the New Advent web site).
