Adult Confirmation

Adult Confirmation Classes & Celebration


Adult Catholics (ages 18 and older) who have been baptized, received First Eucharist, and are practicing their faith but have not celebrated the Sacrament of Confirmation are invited to participate in a diocesan preparation program.


Interested adults must inform the pastor or a member of the parish staff in their home parish that they wish to prepare for the sacrament. They will then be advised of the process for this preparation and what is required of them as a Confirmation candidate. 


The preparation program in the Diocese of Fall River involves six class sessions and a retreat day. Please see below for class schedules.


Our Diocesan Adult Confirmation conferrals take place twice a year- once in the Fall and once during the Easter season.  


Interested in signing up for Spring 2018 classes? Find more information below or 

contact Deacon Bruce Bonneau at 508-678-2828 or bbonneau@dfrcs.org with questions.
