The sealing of the Holy Spirit in Confirmation is the final sacrament of initiation into the Catholic Church. If, for some reason, you have not received this powerful sacrament, we encourage you to do so! Once each year Adult Confirmation preparation is offered for Catholics at least 18 years of age, graduated from high school, already been baptized, received first Eucharist and are actively practicing their faith.
Candidates for Adult Confirmation will receive the sacrament either Pentecost Sunday, June 8, or Trinity Sunday, June 15, 2014.
March 27, April 3, 10, 24, May 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, June 5, 2014
The Adult Confirmation Program at St. Laurence will begin on Thursday, March 27, 2014. The class meets on 10 Thursday evenings from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm in the Religious Education Center. It concludes with celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation at a Mass with one of our Bishops on Pentecost or Trinity Sunday.
Adult Confirmation candidates are required to have sponsors. A sponsor must have received all the Sacraments of Initiation, be at least 16 years of age, be actively practicing the faith and no marriage impediments. If a candidate does not have a sponsor, there are St. Laurence parishioners who are honored to companion candidates. This can be arranged at the time of the interview. Sponsors are asked to attend all sessions if possible.
At the time of the interview, confirmandees must bring their baptismal certificate with them. To register go to www.stlaurence.org/registration, or come by the RE Center and fill out a registration form. Call Mary Visser at the Religious Education Center for more information, 281-265-5774.
