Confirmation for Adults
Once a year the parish runs a six-week preparation for adult Catholics to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation, usually beginning in April.
This group is for practicing, adult Catholics who, for whatever reason, are not Confirmed. If you are a Catholic coming back to faith after a long time, then it may be more appropriate to join the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.
Please contact any of the priests of the parish. They will be happy to meet with you.
