The Sacrament of Confirmation, along with Baptism and Eucharist, is one of the three sacraments of initiation into the Catholic faith. At Confirmation, the Holy Spirit strengthens the baptized Christian and endows the person with the seven gifts that enable us to carry out our mission to be Christ in the world and to continue building God’s kingdom.
