Confirmation

A person is welcomed into the Catholic Church through the three Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism makes you a member of the Church, the Eucharist feeds and strengthens you, and Confirmation helps you to be a witness to your faith.  Through this sacrament God pours out the Holy Spirit to strengthen us with His gifts and anoints us to be more like Christ
