Confirmation is one of the three Sacraments of initiation, along with Baptism & Eucharist. Confirmation completes the grace of Baptism & strengthens the Confirmandi, binding them more perfectly to the Church. The Confirmandi is "sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit". Confirmation is an indelible spiritual mark which unites the Confirmandi with the mission of the Church, to bear witness to the Christian faith in word & deed. Confirmation is not a 'graduation' from Church, nor a 'rite of passage' into adulthood, but a continuation of the spiritual journey already begun at Baptism.
