Catholic Confirmation Symbols:
Holy Ghost, Pentecost, Bishops

You'll love the following Catholic Confirmation symbols for Confirmation or to teach little ones about the Holy Spirit and Pentecost. You can also click on the images below for free coloring sheets to print your own custom coloring book for younger students who are learning about the sacrament of Confirmation. 

The Holy Ghost is a spirit so He is tricky for some children to imagine, so the Catholic church has always used symbols to teach about Him. Here's an example.



Type on Saint Anne's Helper interactive Baltimore Catechism worksheets and coloring pages using your favorite fontscolors, and SIZES.


The wind is a classic symbol of the Holy Spirit. We can not see the wind, yet we can see its work. In a similar way we cannot see the Holy Spirit, yet we can see His work sanctifying the saints of all ages. 

The same goes for the image of a cloud or water. Children easily see how He rains down graces from Heaven. See our Holy Ghost symbols below.

  4. Water, 
  5. Fire.

Catholic Bishop Coloring Pictures

Saint Patrick and Saint Nicholas were bishops, too, so these next pictures of Bishops are also great for their feast days on March 17 and December 6.

See more Bishops on our Saint Patrick's Day coloring pages here.

Catholic Confirmation Symbols: Blessed Trinity

Symbols of the Blessed Trinity can be hard to find on the internet - especially those that are both copy right free and respectful can be hard to find.

  • A symbol of the Blessed Trinity is a shamrock. 
  • There are others as with the triangle.

There are two Trinity Knots on one of our other websites in section 3 of this page at ColorWithFuzzy's Celtic coloring pages here.

  1. God the Father is the Creator. (See our Creation coloring sheets here.)
  2. God the Son is the Savior.
  3. God the Holy Ghost is the Sanctifier.

The color red is symbolic of Confirmation so sometimes girls will wear dresses that have the color red, boys may wear a red tie, and some decorations at home can be done in red. Remember to include the five symbols of the Holy Ghost: a pure white dove, oil or Holy Chrism, a cloud, drops of water, and flames of fire. You can make a mobile with these symbols to hang as a center piece and keep for all your Confirmation events.

You might also like our Descent of the Holy Ghost pictures with our Rosary coloring page as it is also the Third Glorious Mystery of the Rosary. This is also a great collection for the feast of Pentecost, fifty days after Easter.
