Adult Confirmation

We welcome the interest of anyone who would like to be confirmed as an adult!  Confirmation enriches the baptized with the Holy Spirit, binding them more perfectly to the Church, and strengthening them in their witness to Christ by word and deed and in their work to bring to its fullness the Body of Christ. Confirmation is conferred through anointing with chrism and the laying on of hands - a signing with the gift of the Spirit.

Adult Confirmation refers to Roman Catholics who have been baptized, have celebrated their first Communion and are seeking to celebrate their confirmation at an age later than the usual age for confirmation (age 16-17). Adults preparing for Confirmation meet individually with our Pastoral Associate to ready themselves for this sacrament, which is usually celebrated once here in the parish (around January or February) and again on Pentecost (usually in May or June) at the Cathedral of St John the Evangelist with the Bishop.
