The sacrament of Confirmation strengthens the grace bestowed at Baptism and deepens the life that calls us to be missionary witnesses of Jesus Christ in our families, neighborhoods, society, and the world.

Confirmation is one of the three sacraments of initiation in the Church, along with baptism and first Communion. It is often referred to as the “sacrament of maturity,” as it is the final rite of initiation into the Catholic Church. Confirmation can only be given to those who have been baptized. The intention of Confirmation is to mature the soul for the work of creating a deeper relationship with Christ. 


The Church teaches that this Sacrament is necessary because it enriches the person with the strength of the Holy Spirit to build up the Church and to be witnesses of Christ to others.
