Adult Confirmation/R.C.I.A.

Adult Confirmation
The sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist are intimately connected to one another and are known as the Sacraments of Initiation.  Our Adult Confirmation Program is for Catholics who are over the age of 18, received Baptism and Eucharist; but never received the sacrament of Confirmation.  Our program consists of an eight week formation process using a blend of small group activities, formal presentations, and discussion groups.  Please contact  at (978) 251-8571, ext. 212 for more information.

Classes for 2017 will begin in January.    Confirmation is will be held after Easter at the Chapel at Merrimack College in Andover MA.  Please click here for the registration form  AdultRegistrationForm

R.C.I.A. (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults)
The R.C.I.A. which stands for Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults is a process established by the Catholic Church for individuals to become Catholic and receive the sacraments of initiation—Baptism, Confirmation, and the Eucharist.  This is a process through which adults and children (adapted form) are gradually introduced to the Catholic faith and the life of the Church.  Who is the RCIA for?  It is for individuals who are in need of Baptism, persons baptized in another faith tradition who wish to become Catholic, or individuals who are baptized Catholics in need of First Communion and Confirmation.  For more information concerning this process, please contact  at (978) 251-8571, ext. 212.
