You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you;

and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all of Judea and Samaria,

and to the ends of the earth.”

Acts 1:8

What is Confirmation?

Confirmation is the Sacrament by which Catholics receive a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

 

"Confirmation brings an increase and deepening of baptismal grace:

- it roots us more deeply in the divine filiation

- it unites us more firmly to Christ

- it increases the gifts of the Holy Spirit in us

- it renders our bond with the Church more perfect

- it gives us a special strength of the Holy Spirit to spread and defend the faith"

Catechism of the Catholic Church 1303
