Confirmation for Adults

1285 Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the “sacraments of Christian initiation,”… the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. For “by the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.” (CCC)

The sacrament of Confirmation is a part of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). RCIA is a process for adults who are not Catholic to discover Jesus Christ and be fully joined to the Catholic Church.
