Another Option to consider...
In addition to this program there is also the RCIA, which you can learn more about by contacting the RCIA Coordinator. The RCIA would be an excellent program if you feel you have minimal to no background in the Roman Catholic faith, or have not attended Mass in a long time. As opposed to the RCIA, this Confirmation Program is designed for adults who have been Baptized in the Catholic Church, received First Communion, and who are participating in Sunday Mass, but somewhere along the line did not receive Confirmation.
Is there a fee for the Confirmation Program?
Access to the sacraments is a fundamental right of all Catholics; therefore, there is no mandated fee for the program. Costs are covered by your donations to the regular collections on Sundays.
