Confirmation at St. mary's
At St. Mary's, Confirmation preparation requires participation in sessions that run from September through April. Grade nine is the minimum for Confirmation candidates. Sponsors for Confirmation must be at least 16 years of age, baptized and confirmed in the Catholic faith, and must be practicing their Catholic faith. Parents may not serve as sponsors for their children.
The normal process for adults who have been baptized in another Christian denomination is the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults). This process may also be appropriate for adults baptized Catholic who have not received Eucharist and Confirmation. Contact John Giacci at 302-239-7100, ext. 32 to inquire about coming into full communion with the Catholic Church. Adult Catholics who have not been confirmed and wish to receive the sacrament of confirmation may also contact this office or a parish priest or deacon. Register Now for RCIA...
