Confirmation and Baptism Background Message I became a member of the church and thereby a member of God’s family. I was called by name and welcomed into the church with great joy. In the church, I was introduced to life in Jesus Christ. My parents decided to have me baptised because they loved me, and they believed in Jesus. God the Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ freed me from sin and gave me a new birth by the water of the Holy Spirit and welcomed me into his holy people. Confirmation will let me live in closer union with Christ and others. It will help me better understand the Church and live as a member of the Church. It will help me take on the responsibilities of being a Catholic adult. It will help me be a public witness to Christ’s truth.
