Adult Confirmation 2018
This 12-week course will provide college-level instruction and formation for all adults (18+) who wish to grow in their Catholic faith. Everyone is invited! At the same time, this course has been designed to prepare adults who have not yet been Confirmed to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation at Pentecost.
- Adult Catholics who have received Baptism and Eucharist, but who have never been Confirmed
- Or, anyone who wants to attend college-level formation in the Catholic faith
Day and Time:
Wednesdays, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Twelve sessions, starting February 21, 2018 through May 16, 2018.
The complete syllabus, which includes the exact dates of the sessions as well as the reading assignments for each session, is here: 2018 Adult Confirmation Outline. Please do your best to read the first assignment before the first class.

How To Register:
There are two steps:
- Register online at this link.
- Set up an initial interview:
- If you are a parishioner at St. Clare, please contact John Kovacs in the parish office to set up an initial interview: email@example.com, or 281-286-7729.
- If you are not a parishioner, please set up an initial interview at your home parish with the director of Adult Faith Formation (or of Religious Education…whoever it may be who is in charge of Adult Confirmation), and ask him to fax/email to John Kovacs at St. Clare a letter that you have done the initial interview and that you have turned in your Baptism certificate and First Communion certificate.
- If you are not a formally registered parishioner at any particular parish, then you automatically belong to the parish within whose geographical boundaries you live. You can look at a map of parishes in Houston to see which is the nearest parish to where you live here or here. Usually the parish nearest you would also be the parish within whose boundaries you live, but it is not always the case–you might live just over the boundary. So be sure to call the parish to make sure.
- If you are not a formally registered parishioner at any particular parish, but you would like to register at St. Clare and begin attending regularly, then please contact the pastor, Fr. Vincent Nguyen, and set up an appointment to meet with him and discuss your situation.
- Whether or not you can complete the interview before the first class, please still come to the class!
