OLA’s Adult Confirmation Process
OLA’s adult Confirmation process strives to encourage active Catholic adults during this time of development to share their personal stories and interact with others as they are invited to more clearly identify and understand how God is working in their lives. Through this process they are presented with opportunities to come to a deeper realization of their faith and ways to live it out in the context of daily life and the parish community.
As each person's journey is unique, we encourage each person to discern how the Lord is calling them as they prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation. Keeping that in mind, the adult confirmation process typically starts in the fall and the individual is then confirmed in the spring of next year; however, if the individual is in need of more spiritual maturity or is not ready, they may extend their preparation until the individual is ready. In order to distinguish the person's maturity, we will begin the confirmation process with a simple registration & an informal interview.
