For adults wanting to have the sacrament of Confirmation, our parish celebrates this sacrament within the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults Program (RCIA).
The Church teaches
Confirmation is different from baptism. It is administered by laying-on of hands and anointing with chrism accompanied by prayer. The chrism is blessed by the bishop and usually the bishop administers the sacrament. All baptized persons can be confirmed.
