OCIA-Order of Christian Initiation for Adults/ Adult Confirmation

Order of Christian Initiation for Adults


The Orderof Christian Initiation for Adults (OCIA) program welcomes both new-comers and those who are looking for a way back to the Church. It is primarily intended for people who want to learn about the Catholic faith and join the church at Easter, but open to all. The OCIA is designed for those seeking Christian baptism, for those baptized in other Christian denominations who now seek full communion with the Catholic Church, and for already baptized Catholics seeking to complete sacramental initiation through the reception of Confirmation and Holy Eucharist.

Are you a practicing Catholic adult who was never confirmed? We invite you to join the Confirmation program to refresh your Catholic Faith with the goal of being confirmed in the spring.
