Baptism, 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."

- CCC 1285

Confirmation preparation is a two year process. At St. Mark, youth who have already received Baptism and First Communion can begin Confirmation preparation as early as their freshman year of high school. Therefore, the second year of preparation and reception of Confirmation often occurs during their sophomore year.
