Confirmation for Adults

PLEASE NOTE: Due to circumstances related to COVID-19, all sacrament preparation sessions have been cancelled and all sacrament celebrations have been indefinitely delayed. If your child was in the process of preparing for one or more of the sacraments, instructions on completing the preparation from home will be communicated.

Adult candidates are called to be witnesses of Christ's love as they receive the fullness of the gifts of the Holy Spirit in Confirmation and complete their Christian initiation. 

Please be aware: if divorced and remarried, or married outside the Church (in a civil marriage or married in another Christian denomination), we may contact a candidate about the process of annulment or convalidation prior to the reception of Confirmation. In some cases, this could delay the Confirmation for the candidate as necessary. Once registered, we will follow up with a candidate in such a circumstance and go over the steps required. 

 

Online registration for Adult Confirmation is now available.

Please contact Dan at sacraments@stalbertthegreat.ca with any questions.
