Notice from the Archbishop Regarding Adult Initiation
Additionally, OEEC has issued a guidance document for matters of faith formation in these times. If you are responsible for Adult Confirmation, we recommend reviewing this document.
For those parishes who are prepared to offer Adult Confirmation sacramental preparation:
We ask that you keep our office informed regarding your Adult Confirmation preparation offerings, as we get a large number of inquiries and would like to direct those inquirers to their [nearest] parish. Please complete the assessment above!
For those adults looking to make the sacrament of Confirmation:
Please begin by reviewing this list of Frequently Asked Questions.
Please be in contact with your local parish. They are the first point of contact, and many are prepared to support you in this way.
The OEEC will be coordinating the Adult Confirmation ceremonies in the fall and in the spring, but preparation for the sacrament takes place only in the context of the parish.
A five-week series of sessions in preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation is being offered on zoom beginning, Wednesday, April 21, from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm. If you, or another adult you know is interested, please contact Sr. Carolyn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
