Sacrament of Confirmation for Adults
Are you an adult Catholic who has not received the Sacrament of Confirmation?
Did you know that you need to be confirmed in order to be fully initiated in the Catholic Faith? That you cannot be a sponsor for Baptism or Confirmation unless you were confirmed?
Confirmation by the Bishop will be celebrated at St. Basil the Great in May 2016. If you would like to celebrate the Sacrament at that time, now is the time to contact Sr. Judith Wood (440) 526-1686 about the program of preparation for this Sacrament.
