Adult Confirmation Program

St. Charles Parish offers a five-month adult confirmation preparation course.  This weekly formation process involves formal instruction and faith sharing sessions.  It includes a study of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit in the context of daily life experience.

This program is open to persons who have reached their 18th birthday, have graduated from high school, have been baptized in the Catholic Church, have already received their First Holy Communion, and, for whatever reason, have not yet received the Sacrament of Confirmation.  They are active parishioners and have a sense of commitment to their faith.

Did you miss receiving the sacrament of Confirmation? Here's your opportunity to complete the grace of Baptism and Eucharist and be sealed with the fullness of the gift of the Holy Spirit!
