The Confirmation process is in association with Nativity of Blessed Virgin Mary Parish in Independence, and is open to all youth of the parish that have completed eighth grade. The youth meet in the home of a group leader to involve themselves in functions that are social, spiritual and service oriented. Diocesan guidelines require days of reflection and retreats as well as volunteer service work in the local and broader community.
Adults who have been baptized in the Catholic Church but have not received the sacrament of confirmation and desire to do so should set up an appointment with the Fr. Dave Holloway to determine the most appropriate preparation program for the individual. The preparation program may include either a series of meetings in a group or as an individual leading to the annual confirmation rite celebrated with the Bishop or participation in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).
