Adult Confirmation


Adults who have not received the Sacrament of Confirmation are encouraged to register and attend a series of monthly gatherings designed to offer the adult Catholic a fuller and deeper understanding of the Catholic Faith as a preparation to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in late spring when the Archbishop or his designate visits St. Joseph to confirm.

In order to receive the Sacrament, candidates must be baptized in the Catholic faith, active in the Sacramental life of the parish and following the values and teachings of the Church.

Candidates will choose a sponsor to assist them in this journey of preparation.

All adults 18 or older out of high school who have not received the Sacrament of Confirmation are invited to register for Adult Confirmation classes.

Please contact Sister Joelle Aflague, Pastoral Assistant for Outreach at or 360-823-2832.

Now when the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God, they sent them Peter and John, who went down and prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Spirit, for it had not yet fallen upon any of them; they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then they laid hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit. (Acts 8:14-18).
