It is an honor and privilege to assist in the preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation.
Confirmation perfects Baptismal grace; it is the sacrament which gives the Holy Spirit in order to root us more deeply in Christ, strengthen our bond with the Church and her mission, it also helps us bear witness to the Christian faith in our words and actions. (CCC 1316)
