Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation together constitute the sacraments of Christian initiation. The Catechism of the Catholic Church states that “Preparation for Confirmation should aim at leading the Christian toward more intimate union with Christ and a more lively familiarity with the Holy Spirit- his actions, his gifts, and his bidding – in order to be more capable of assuming the apostolic responsibilities of Christian life.”
If you are 18 years of age or older, out of High School, and have not received the Sacrament of Confirmation, now is the time to consider completing your sacraments of initiation. Adult Confirmation is for those who have already been baptized and have received their first communion.
Adult Confirmation has already begun for Fall of 2021 and registration has closed. We will begin a new session in the new year. Please stay tuned to this webpage and our bulletin for more details about our next session.
In the meantime, if you are interested in registering for our next Adult Confirmation session, or just have questions, please contact John Rinaldo at [email protected] or 702-476-2281.
The 2021 Fall/Winter sessions are listed below. They take place on Tuesdays from 6:30-8:00 pm in Room 9 of the Community Center, unless otherwise noted.
