Receive the Holy Spirit

Together, the sacrament of Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation constitute the sacraments of Christian initiation, by which God brings his children into his family, the Church.

The primary effect of confirmation is the full outpouring of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Confirmation increases and deepens the roots of grace that were first experienced at baptism and enables those confirmed to become fuller witnesses to the power of God working within them. Like baptism, confirmation also imprints a special character, an indelible spiritual mark, upon the person. Confirmation completes the process first experienced through baptism, by which the Triune God claims the individual person for his family.
