Adult Confirmation

Annually, the office sponsors a celebration of adult Confirmation in the Fall. This includes a mandatory retreat. This opportunity enables men and women who have received the Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Eucharist in the Catholic Church to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation, thus completing the Sacraments of Initiation.

Eligible persons must fill out the below form, submit it to their pastor for his signature and send it to the Office for Divine Worship with a copy of their Baptismal/First Communion Certificate.
