Confirmation, along with Baptism and the Eucharist, is part of coming into the Catholic Church. Confirmation completes a journey started by Baptism, and is important for all Catholics.
Why is Confirmation important?
As Catholics, we believe that Jesus promised us the help of the Holy Spirit. By becoming Confirmed in the Catholic Church, we are given the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and can share our beautiful faith with the world.
