For people who were baptized as infants, Confirmation is the final sacrament of initiation. Once one has completed the reception of Baptism, First Communion and Confirmation they are considered to be in full communion with the Catholic Church. It is a rite of passage and a recognition of a certain level of maturity in one’s faith life.
Sadly today, many adults have not received the sacrament of Confirmation. The reasons vary widely as to why they did not get confirmed before the end of high school, but now the busyness of adult life continues to impede them from completing the preparation necessary for reception of this sacrament. Until recently our parish has offered attendance in the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) sessions as the only avenue for preparation for this sacrament. For an individual whose faith life has been sparse or for people who are coming from another Christian tradition this process might be the very best way for them to renew the spirit within and prepare for active participation in the Catholic Church. For others the RCIA may not be fruitful, they need something that reaches them in their already active faith life.
The Adult Confirmation class meets on Thursdays at 7 p.m. starting after Easter.
The Sacrament of Confirmation for adults will be held each Spring on Pentecost Sunday at the Cathedral.
If you are interested in being a part of the next class please call and let us know.
