Adult Confirmation


It is common for us to realize as adults that we want to know more about our faith and to wrestle with some of the more difficult questions we have.

Here at Prince of Peace we are honored to help our adults prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation, because we understand that faith is a lifelong journey, and many of us who have been Catholic our entire lives are now ready to explore our faith in a new way.

Sacrament Preparation Information

Growing Together

Our adults preparing for Confirmation have a special opportunity to grow in their relationship with God, themselves, and the other adults preparing for Confirmation at our weekly sessions where we learn together, ask questions, and encourage one another in our journey of faith.


Here at Prince of Peace, our Christian Initiation Ministry recognizes that everyone’s faith journey does not look the same. So whatever the situation, we’re here to assist each individual on his or her unique journey.

If you have questions or concerns about the process, just let us know.

Choosing Your Confirmation Sponsor

Confirmation sponsors have an important role in the lives of those receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation.

Below are some helpful guidelines to remember as you choose your sponsor.

The sponsor prays for their candidate, answers questions, and serves as a role model in the faith. Choose someone who lives his or her Catholic life well: daily prayer, weekly Mass, knowledgeable about the faith. Obviously, the sponsor doesn’t have to be perfect, but he or she must be striving to live our Catholic faith every day. Although it is not absolutely necessary, it is most helpful if the sponsor is local so that he or she can frequently meet up with you.

Yes, sponsors must be fully initiated (Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist) Catholics who attend Mass regularly and are able to receive the Eucharist. An unbaptized or non-Christian person is not eligible to be a sponsor for Confirmation. Must be a practicing Catholic in good standing who is active in the Catholic Church and regularly attends Mass on Sunday while striving to live the faith daily.

Yes, if married, a sponsor’s marriage must be recognized by the Catholic Church. If married civilly or in another Christian tradition, living in free union, or common law, he or she is not eligible to serve as a sponsor until the marriage is recognized in the Catholic Church.

Your Confirmation sponsor can definitely be one of your godparents from Baptism – that’s a beautiful way to celebrate the unity of the sacraments. The Archdiocese only allows one sponsor.

Adult Confirmation Enrollment Steps

Schedule a Meeting with Adult Confirmation Coordinator

During this conversation, we will talk about your relationship with God, explain what your next steps will be, and answer any questions you might have.

The conversation is nothing to dress up for or worry about, it’s simply a conversation so we can get to know you better and help you with Confirmation.

Schedule My Meeting

Attend Adult Confirmation Classes

The process lasts about four to five months. We meet as a group weekly for one and a half hours. We also have a one-day retreat about two months into preparation.

Sessions are offered in both English and Spanish in the spring and fall of each year.

Submit a Copy of Your Baptismal Certificate

Your baptismal certificate needs to be a new copy that has been issued from your parish of baptism in the last six months.
