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. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed. (CCC1285)

St. Francis Borgia's Confirmation program begins in 7th grade with a two-year preparation for confirmation. The preparation includes choosing a sponsor, choosing a saint, completing service in the family, parish, and community, attending a retreat, and other projects assigned by the teacher or pastor.
