Sacrament of Confirmation
Confirmation is the sacrament that completes the grace we receive in Baptism. It seals, or confirms, this grace through the seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit that we receive as part of Confirmation. This sacrament also makes us better able to participate in the worship and apostolic life of the church. Like Baptism, Confirmation is received only once in a person’s life.
The Sacraments of Initiation solemnly mark the entrance of an individual into the adult Catholic Christian community. This initiation signifies that the person has died to sin and is reborn in Christ. Through Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist, one becomes a full member of the Body of Christ, the Church.

Confirmation for Adults
ADULT CONFIRMATION (NON-CATHOLIC)
Non-Catholic adults are prepared for confirmation through a process called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). This process invites participants to pray, examine Catholic beliefs, and to begin to experience Gods love through the Catholic community. The process moves through several stages and culminates with the participant celebrating full communion with the Church at Easter.
ADULT CONFIRMATION (CATHOLIC)
Catholic adults who have not celebrated confirmation are prepared through a six week regional process offered each Spring and Fall. For more information, please contact Fr. Albert Anover at 425-3940.
