The Adult Confirmation Program in the Archdiocese of Chicago is a collaborative effort between our Bishops, parishes and the Office for Catechesis and the Office for Divine Worship.
Adult Catholics (ages 18 and older) who have been baptized and received First Communion and are practicing their faith but have not celebrated the Sacrament of Confirmation are invited to participate in the program.
Interested adults must inform a priest, deacon, religious sister or brother, or a lay minister in their home parish that they wish to participate in the program. The candidate will be asked to briefly communicate with their parish minister two times during the process.
The interested candidate then should register at one of the preparation sites listed on the accompanying chart. Programs are offered in English, Polish and Spanish.
Most preparation programs meet weekly for one and a half – two hours for eight sessions.
Most programs charge a registration fee of $75.00, to cover expenses for the program.
Candidates are asked to bring a copy of their baptismal certificates with them to the program.
