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
If you are planning 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. If your parish is offering Adult Confirmation Preparations, please email us.
- We 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.
The next Adult Confirmation Ceremony will be in November 2022 (Date coming soon!) at the Cathedral of Saint Joseph, Hartford. The ceremony will begin at 7:00 p.m., however, those being confirmed, as well as their sponsors, should arrive no later than 6:15 p.m. for a brief rehearsal.
Forms for Adult Confirmation
- Registration Form: This year we are going to be going digital! The Center for Catholic Education and Formation is changing the registration form to a digital format. You will be able to register and upload all the necessary documents all in one place. We hope that this system will be easier. Registration links will be posted soon.
