Adult Confirmation

There are several options for adults who are baptized Catholics and are seeking to complete their Sacraments of  Initiation with Confirmation. (If you are also seeking First Eucharist, then please see our RCIA page.)

This fall, 2017, our primary  Celebration will be on November 19 at 2:00 pm with Bishop George Murry, SJ at St. Columba Cathedral.  We also will cerebrate the Sacrament at the East Vigil on March 31, 2018.  If these dates do not work for you, other arrangements can possibly be made.  Please contact  the parish office for more information.

Preparation for the Sacrament includes 4 flexible sessions for formation.  The topics for these session include but are not limited to the following:

  • Belonging to the universal Church

  • Catholic Belief and Practice 

  • Sacraments of Initiation

  • The Sacraments of Confirmation, with a special focus on the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, and  the Rite of Confirmation.

Of course, your questions and concerns are a priority and there will be plenty or time to discuss them.  We promise to provide you with engaging conversation that is relevant to YOUR journey while being faithful to our guidelines.

Please know that we will need a copy of your baptism certificate if you were not baptize at Saint Patrick Parish.  You wil also need a sponsor who is a confirmed, practicing Catholic.
