Confirmation is a sacrament of spiritual growth that enables a person to stand before the world as a witness to the power of the Holy Spirit. The person being confirmed is committed to Christ and is ready to be a responsible worker in the Christian community.

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

Adults who are not baptized enter a formation process called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). After an adequate period of preparation, adult baptisms are celebrated annually at the Saturday night Vigil on the Eve of Easter. 

If you are a baptized adult (over the age of 18), are Catholic and have not been confirmed, we offer sessions to learn more about the process to be prepared to receive Confirmation through RCIA.
