Campus Ministry: Confirmation Program for Adult Catholics
Confirmation completes Catholic initiation. The Sacrament is an outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the believer and strengthens her to live the Faith in the world. Like all Sacraments, it is a free gift from God given through the Church. Through Confirmation, Catholics are more fully empowered to live the vocation of Priest, Prophet, and King that they were given at Baptism.
Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation at UP is designed to enliven the faith of the Confirmation Candidate, expose her to new forms of prayer and spirituality, and equip her to live a life of Christian Mission. The program begins early in the Fall Semester and culminates in the Easter Season with the celebration of the sacrament with Archbishop Sample in the Chapel of Christ the Teacher. It includes five short sessions and one weekend retreat.
Anyone who has been baptized in the Catholic Church is welcome to explore receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation if he or she has not done so already.
