Adult Confirmation

Remember, then, that you received a spiritual seal: the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of knowledge and reverence, the spirit of holy fear. Keep safe what you received. God the Father sealed you, Christ the Lord strengthened you and sent the Spirit into your hearts as the pledge of what is to come.

– Saint Ambrose


Fall 2017 Ceremony

Pictures are available now in our photo gallery or by clicking here. Deepest gratitude is extended to all catechists, sponsors, parishes, and loved ones who supported these confirmandi on their journeys. We especially thank Archbishop Leonard P. Blair for his presence among us to confirm them. Congratulations to all the newly confirmed!

For those who are prepared to offer Adult Confirmation classes:

  • We ask that you keep our office informed regarding your Adult Confirmation class offerings, as we get a large number of inquiries and would like to direct those inquirers to their [nearest] parish.
  • If you currently/plan to run Adult Confirmation classes, please fill out the brief survey linked here so that we may keep updated records of what is available throughout the Archdiocese.

For those adults looking to make the sacrament of Confirmation:

  • Please be in contact with your local parish. They are the first point of contact, and many either run their own classes or are preparing to do so.
  • The OEEC will be coordinating the Adult Confirmation ceremonies in the fall and in the spring, but not running classes outside of parishes.
