If you are an adult Catholic who has been baptized but never confirmed, you are eligible for our adult confirmation program, which consists of the following:
what to expect
Candidates are expected to attend seven preparation classes led by our Faith Formation Director and priests. You can find the class dates listed below.
Candidates choose a sponsor to accompany them during the sacrament of Confirmation and beyond. This sponsor should not be the candidate’s parent, and should be a faithful Catholic who is committed to helping the candidate lead a Christian life.
After attending preparation classes, the candidate will receive Confirmation at the Restored Order Mass. If the candidate has not already received his or her First Eucharist, he or she will do so at the Restored Order Mass as well.
At Nativity, we have two Restored Order Masses each year: one in the spring and one in the fall. Candidates and their sponsors must attend a rehearsal the week of the ceremony, and must arrive early for the ceremony itself.
