About the Sacrament
It is not always easy to be a witness to our faith. We need special help from God, just as Jesus’ disciples did. Just as the disciples were blessed with the fullness of the Holy Spirit and received the Gifts of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, we receive the sign or the seal of the Holy Spirit in Confirmation. This Sacrament perfects our baptismal grace and through the gifts of the Holy Spirit helps us grow to Christian maturity. It strengthens our bond with the Church, associates us more closely with her mission and helps us bear witness to Jesus in our words and deeds.
