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.

CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, 229

The Sacrament of Confirmation is one of the three Sacraments of Initiation.

In the Sacrament of Confirmation, by the help and guidance of the Holy Spirit, the baptized person is more perfectly bound to the life and mission of the Church (CCC, 1285).  The descent of the Holy Spirit upon Jesus at his baptism by John was not something uniquely given to the Messiah.  It was a gift that was to be shared to us all, so that we might unite ourselves to Jesus, through the Holy Spirit, in order to continue his mission (CCC, 1286). 

“The effect of the Sacrament of Confirmation is the full outpouring of the Holy Spirit which was granted to the apostles on the day of Pentecost” (CCC, 1302).  Our mission, which is given to us by the Church, is to prepare candidates for Confirmation “to assume the role of disciple and witness to Christ” in the Church and in the world.
