Our Adult Confirmation program, offered in collaboration with other local parishes, is designed for the adult who is a baptized Catholic and is considering a commitment to faith in Christ through the Sacrament of Confirmation.
Purpose of the Program
Confirmation, to be an authentic commitment, requires three areas of awareness and growth. Simply expressed these are:
- A genuine friendship with God—in a special way, with the person of Jesus. We study the person of Jesus by reflecting on Scripture and discovering ways to apply these insights and lessons to our everyday life.
- A deeper understanding of Catholic Faith. As Catholics we share a unique tradition that invites us to proclaim the Word, to celebrate through community worship, to serve as Jesus taught us to serve.
- A time to reflect on your life. Your maturity and awareness of your own life will allow you to freely choose Confirmation as a step in your faith journey.
Confirmation Preparation Program
Every preparation program requires the full participation of each individual. The elements of our Adult Confirmation program are designed to offer you the best preparation we can. No matter how good a program is, you are the only one who can make it worthwhile. You are the most important element in our preparation process for the sacrament.
The preparation course requires the full participation of the individual for 11 sessions, which last two hours each, 7:00- 9:00 p.m. plus an evening of reflection. (The evening of reflection is the exception : 6:00-9:00 p.m.) Our program concludes with the celebration of the sacrament at the Easter Vigil.
