SACRAMENT OF CONFIRMATION
This sacrament is administered every other year by the auxiliary
bishop of Chicago.
the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute
the "sacraments of Christian initiation" whose unity
must be safeguarded. It must be explained to the faithful that
the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for
the completion of baptismal grace. For "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)
