Adult Confirmation Program

Over the past several years, an increasing number of young people have not been confirmed. As young adults, they frequently seek to receive the fullness of the sacraments. Sometimes they are placed in their parish RCIA program. While it can be fruitful, it is not necessarily the most appropriate place for them. Similarly, the necessary length of the RCIA program can be a deterrent.

Adult Confirmation Fall 2017The Department of New Evangelization is pleased to continue opportunities for Adult Confirmation. They will be offered for eight consecutive weeks on the Diocese of Green Bay campus starting the week of August 24, 2017.

Following the lead of Pope Francis in Evangelii Gaudium, we want to be "facilitators of grace" in helping our people receive the sacrament of Confirmation. It is also an opportunity to evangelize and re-engage Catholics who no longer regularly practice the faith by providing the opportunity and laying the foundation for candidates to become "missionary disciples" (Evangelii Guadium).

Each session will use the framework of prayer, discipleship, and mission in presenting its theme using these foundational resources: the United States Catholic Catechism for Adults (USCCA), Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC), Alpha videos, and the Bible.

Participants will be confirmed at the Diocesan Confirmation Mass on Sunday, October 8, 2017.
