The sacrament of Confirmation has two primary effects:
- The bond with the church is strengthened which first began in baptism
- The person is enriched with an outpouring of the Holy Spirit and receives the spiritual gifts of the spirit.
Both of these effects perfect the grace that is first received in Baptism and helps us continue to live our baptismal call as disciples of Christ to the world.
