Confirmation for Adults is a program of preparation to receive the Catholic sacrament of Confirmation.
Candidates will need to attend eight classes to prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation. We offer these preparation classes twice a year, one series in September and another in January. The celebration of the sacrament for adults is usually in mid-November and during the Easter Vigil. There is no charge for these classes. Contact Bill Marcotte firstname.lastname@example.org, 480-899-1990, ext.110 for more information or to sign up for the classes.
