December Family of Faith: The Sacrament of Confirmation and Advent

The Sacrament of Confirmation completes or confirms the outpouring of the Holy Spirit received at Baptism. Confirmation is not an end but a beginning! Through this Sacrament, we receive a special strength to do what all Christians are called to do, share the Good News of the Gospel and make Disciples of Christ! (CCC 1285, 1286, 1303, 1306, 1319)
