The Archdiocesan Adult Confirmation Program is designed for practicing adult (18+) Catholics seeking the sacrament of Confirmation, who have been baptized, have received their first Holy Communion, and have been educated in the Catholic faith through Catholic Schools or religious education programs.

The Archdiocesan Adult Confirmation Program will present an overview of the essentials of the Catholic Faith, focusing on immediate catechesis for the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation. This is a program of adult faith formation that combines presentations, group discussion, reflection and prayer. The sessions will cover Sacred Scripture and Tradition, the Creed, prayer and spirituality, the Church, Catholic social teaching and meaning of the sacrament of Confirmation.

Please note if you are an unbaptized, or baptized but uncatechized (not practicing Catholics); you would benefit from participation in a parish’s RCIA process. If this is your case, please visit with your local parish Pastor/Priest or parish RCIA coordinator.
