Adult Confirmation

OLA’s Adult Confirmation Process


OLA’s adult Confirmation process strives to encourage active and non-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.


In these sessions, we gather as a group and open with prayer. Then a speaker or video series is used to present the teaching. After the teaching confirmation candidates break open the lesson through discussion and activities. We then conclude with announcements and closing prayer. Our sessions cover various topics approved and mandated by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.


Confirmation Sessions & Topics

Candidates are required to attend all sessions listed on the schedule. However, we realize that family life and emergencies occur. As a courtesy, if a candidate will miss a session please email Mariela Arellano at rcia@olaclaremont.org Excessive absences will be reason for a candidate to return for extra formation prior to receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation.  


Our process will present a comprehensive and systematic formation in the faith so that the candidate can enter deeply into the mystery of Christ. Through each session we hope to clearly identify what the Church teaches on the topic, why it should matter to us personally, and how to incorporate it into our daily life.


The following topics will be covered by the Adult Confirmation Process


  • Jesus of History, the Christ of Faith
  • Church and the People of God
  • Church Liturgy
  • Morality
  • The Social Mission of the Church
  • Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, First Communion, Confirmation)
  • Sacraments of Healing (Confession, Anointing of the Sick)
  • Sacraments of Service (Holy Orders, Holy Matrimony)
  • Missionary Discipleship
  • Prayer
The Adult Confirmation process is currently being updated for the 2019-20 Formation Year. Registrations will be open in July. For more information regarding the Adult Confirmation process please contact Mariela Arellano at rcia@olaclaremont.org
