This video from Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly explores the Sacrament of Confirmation in the Roman Catholic Church. During this Sacrament, adolescents are brought into full communion with the Catholic Church. The Sacrament is bestowed after participants complete a lengthy period of religious instruction. In the United States they also may be required to complete some community service. At the time of Confirmation, young people take the name of a saint who represents a spiritual model for their adult lives as followers of Jesus Christ.
