Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the “sacraments of Christian initiation,” whose unity must be safeguarded. It must be explained to the faithful that the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. For “by the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.”

(CCC #1285)

Why is Confirmation important?

Strengthening of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit: Confirmation is a sacrament that imparts the gifts of the Holy Spirit upon the recipient. These gifts, which include wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord, help the confirmed person to live a more fully Christian life and to bear witness to their faith courageously.



Empowerment for Active Participation in the Church: Through Confirmation, the confirmed Catholic is enriched with the strength of the Holy Spirit, empowering them to actively participate in the mission of the Church. They are called to spread and defend the faith, and to be active members of the Christian community, serving others with love and compassion.
