Confirmation, together with Baptism and Eucharist, form the sacraments of Initiation that are all intimately connected. In the sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized person is sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit and is strengthened for service to the Body of Christ. The bishop is the minister of Confirmation. The sacrament is conferred by the laying on of hands and anointing with the Oil of Sacred Chrism.
The reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace…By the sacrament of Confirmation the baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. --Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 1285.
