Adult Confirmation

There are many reasons why Catholics do not complete their Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Communion, and Confirmation). At Good Shepherd Catholic Parish we are committed to assisting our parishioners in receiving all the graces provided by our generous Heavenly Father - which he provides through the Sacraments.

Confirmation is the culmination of those powerful Sacraments of Initiation. It is the Sacrament bestowed as a gift upon the Candidate in response to saying “YES" to Jesus and choosing to be a Catholic Christian. Grace is poured out and the Confirmation Candidate is strengthened by the Holy Spirit to live life according to God's will.

 

Classes begin in September and conclude in December, with the Confirmation Mass being celebrated in January. If you have not yet received First Holy Communion, that Sacrament will be received at the same time.

Join us on Tuesday evenings from 7:00-9:00 PM at St. Mary’s hall. Participants must be baptized Catholic, and be at least 18 years of age to register. Each of us has a unique and personal faith journey. We are here to assist in your continued formation and becoming fully initiated into the Catholic Church.

 

Blessings,

Dan & Arlene Vianello
