The reception of the sacrament of Confirmation completes the grace of Baptism by a special outpouring of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, which seal or “confirm” the baptized in union with Christ, and equip them for active participation in the worship and apostolic life of the Church.
(CCC 1285-1288, glossary)
The Sacrament of Confirmation is not a “graduation” from Church. It is the beginning of a life of full membership in the Body of Christ. This is not some “rite of passage” with no meaning; rather, this Sacrament will denote one of the most important days of your life, and can be a source of excitement and joy if you choose to enter into it. Do not take this lightly.
You should be at least 16 years of age to receive Confirmation at Our Lady of Lourdes.
