Lifelong Formation

Adult Confirmation

“For by the Sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence, they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.” (LG 11; cf. Rite of Confirmation, Introduction 2)

The Archdiocese of Chicago, through the Office of Lifelong Formation, encourages adults who are called to strengthen their faith and become confirmed to complete this vocation. The archdiocese offers Adult Confirmation preparation classes in the spring and fall. Classes are offered virtually and onsite.

Please note, you must be 19 years of age or older and have completed the sacraments of Baptism and Communion.
