Sacrament of Confirmation for Adults on

Pentecost Sunday

The Most Reverend J. Douglas Deshotel, is allowing Pastors of Parishes to confer the Sacrament of Confirmation on Baptized Catholics who are eighteen (18) years of age or older during the celebration of one Mass on Pentecost Sunday or its Vigil. Candidates MUST meet all of the requirements for the sacrament, if married, married in the Church, attending Mass regularly, and MUST participate in at least two sessions preparing for the Sacrament. If anyone is interested, please contact the parish office during office hours for more information. This is unique opportunity for those who have not received Confirmation. I look forward to meeting with those who are interested.
