Adult Confirmation is a process of preparation designed to prepare adult candidates for the Sacrament of Confirmation. Confirmation, together with Baptism and Eucharist, form the Sacraments of Initiation, all of which are intimately connected. In the Sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized person is "sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit" and is strengthened for service to the Body of Christ.
Requirements of the Archdiocese to receive this sacrament include:
An adult, over 18, who is registered in one of the parishes in the Archdiocese of Kansas City.
Person for whom the Pastor of their parish is able to testify that the candidate is prepared to received the sacrament of Confirmation, including proof of Baptism and First Communion.
Persons who, if married, are in valid unions in accord with the Church regulations.
Preparation consists of weekly discussion sessions on related topics and other activities, including regular attendance at Sunday and Holy Day masses. The process normally begins in January (day/time TBD) and goes through Pentecost Sunday when the Sacrament of Confirmation is usually celebrated at the Cathedral of St. Peter in Kansas City, KS.
