St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Community
Bishop Adult Initiative for the Rite of Confirmation
In an effort to “open wide the doors to Christ” for the people of our diocese, Bishop Kevin Farrell has extended the permission for pastors to confirm adults
in their parishes on Pentecost, May 19, 2013. In this light, St. Mark the Evangelist, through Bishop Farrell, invites our practicing adult Catholics (18 years of
age and out of high school), who lack the Sacrament of Confirmation, to be sealed with the fullness of the gift of the Holy Spirit.
If you are currently a registered member of St. Mark the Evangelist and a practicing adult Catholic in good standing and have
already received the Sacrament of Baptism and Eucharist, you are invited to register and attend the preparation class on
Tues. May 7, beginning at 7:00pm, in the Upper Room. Sponsors are welcome to attend. Adult Confirmation will be celebrated on
Pentecost, Sunday, May 19, 2013, at the 9:00am Mass.
To register for the Adult Confirmation preparation class, the following information must be turned in to the Faith Formation Office prior to attending the class.
 Registration Form for the Bishop's Adult Initiative for the Rite of Confirmation (additional copies available on our website or the Parish Office)
 a copy of Baptismal Certificate with notations (if no notations are listed and you are married, we must have a copy of the church marriage
 a letter of good standing from the Sponsor’s parish*
*Please note to be a sponsor for the Sacrament of Confirmation, the following is required: he or she must be a baptized Catholic who has received the
Eucharist and been Confirmed, and who is currently living a sacramental life (e.g., attending Mass regularly, making use of the sacrament of Reconciliation)
and if married, in a marriage recognized by the Catholic church; be at least sixteen years of age; lead a life of faith in harmony with the ministry they are
