“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.”

– Catechism of the Catholic Church 1285

Confirmation seals our Baptism and confirms out commitment both to the Church and to the work of Christ in the world.
