Are you an adult, practicing Catholic, 18 years or older, who has not yet celebrated the sacrament of Confirmation? Would you like to publicly confirm your baptismal commitment by completing your initiation into the Church? If the answer is yes to each of these questions, please read on to find out how you can prepare for the celebration of Confirmation.
Each Pentecost Sunday adults from all over the Archdiocese of Detroit who have been prepared in their parishes or vicariates come together to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation. This celebration takes place at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament, with one of our Bishops.
In our West Wayne Vicariate, we are offering a six-week preparation time for adult Catholics who wish to be confirmed on Pentecost Sunday, June 5, 2022 or in their own parishes the next time the bishop comes for Confirmation. These sessions are open to anyone in the West Wayne Vicariate who is eligible and who may want to prepare for Confirmation. To be eligible means you are a baptized Catholic who has received their First Communion, you regularly attend Mass, and if you are married it is a marriage valid in the Catholic Church.
The preparation sessions will be held on the six Thursdays of Easter season, beginning April 28, 2022, from 7 – 9 pm. The 6 sessions will cover the following topics through presentations and discussions:
- Session 1 – The Journey of Faith
- Session 2 – The Bible
- Session 3 – Sacraments of Baptism & Confirmation
- Session 4 – The Eucharist/ A Walk through Mass
- Session 5 – Penance & Anointing of Sick
- Session 6 – Why do I need the Church?
All sessions will take place at:
St. Kateri Parish Hall, 16101 Rotunda Dr, Dearborn, MI 48120
Deadline for registration is April 22, 2022
If you are interested, call Grace Lakatos, Director of Faith Formation, at the parish office, for more information.
