Catholic Parent Know-How: Confirmation, Revised
This time of Confirmation, completing Baptism, now gives your whole family a chance to reflect with your son or daughter on the all-pervading importance of our Catholic life. Confirmation is a celebration of the ongoing power of the already-present Holy Spirit in our lives, the Spirit first received in Baptism. Confirmation deepens and intensifies the gifts of the Spirit.
