Confirmation for Adults


Those that were not confirmed as youth often find themselves seeking greater unity with the Church later in life. The community of The Basilica of Saint Mary values those that yearn to share more fully in the life of the community. For that reason, The Basilica of Saint Mary offers a one year program for adults. Over the course of the year, adult candidates will be challenged to engage in active participation in the life of community through the celebration of Sunday Eucharist and service and ministry experiences. Furthermore, candidates will participate in a retreat and Tuesday evening sessions throughout the year that will invite them to consider their faith more closely, as well as the sacrament of Confirmation. 

To participate in the adult program, candidates must call the Learning Office to schedule an appointment with Paula Kaempffer 612.317.3473, Director of Learning, before October 1.
