“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. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, #1285)
The Church confirms both young people in adolescence and those children and adults who are baptized as part of the Rite of Christian of Adults (or Children.) At St. Max, the Rite of Confirmation is normally celebrated by the archbishop (or his delegate) annually during the Easter Season.
