In the Rite of Baptism, we become new members of the Body of Christ, the decision to be baptized is followed by continued growth, learning and witness as members of the Body of Christ. Confirmation enriches the baptized with the strength of the Holy Spirit so that they can better witness to Christ in word and deed (Catechism of the Catholic Church no. 1285). Anointed by the Holy Spirit at Confirmation, Christians strengthen their bond with the Church and become better equipped to carry out the Church's mission of love and service. Thus, Confirmation is not only an anointing but also a commissioning to live out our faith in the world.
For adults who wish to be Confirmed in the Church, contact Fr. Kevin about OCIA.
