Through the Sacrament of Confirmation we receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit and renew our baptismal promises.
Any baptized Christian may be confirmed. The Catholic Church also requires that in order "to receive Confirmation, one must be in a state of grace. One should receive the Sacrament of Penance in order to be cleansed for the gift of the Holy Spirit. More intense prayer should prepare one to receive the strength and graces of the Holy Spirit with docility and readiness to act” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1310). In addition, “A candidate for Confirmation who has attained the age of reason must profess the Faith, be in a state of grace, have the intention for receiving the Sacrament, and be prepared to assume the role of disciple and witness to Christ, both within the ecclesial community and temporal affairs” (Catechism, 1319).
Preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation is offered through Mission Concepción's RCIA program.
