About Adult Confirmation
The Adult Confirmation process is a fun interactive opportunity for Catholics who have not had the opportunity to receive the sacrament of Confirmation to complete their full initiation into the Catholic Church. This ten-week process emphasizes the basics of Catholic teaching respecting the adult audience’s many concerns, questions and responsibilities. Some of the topics include the Trinity, sacraments, prayer, and morality. The last session is a retreat-like evening of prayer, reflecting on the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Sessions are weekly, in the evening, during the winter months. The Confirmation celebration takes place annually, during the Easter season, and is arranged in accordance with the Bishop’s calendar. We are taking information for the the sessions that will begin Winter 2019.
