We will hold an Adult Confirmation Preparation series in October and November. It will be a series of five sessions for adults who were baptized Catholic as infants and made first Holy Communion as children but did not receive the sacrament of Confirmation when they were teenagers. Catholics who wish to be a godparent for Baptism or a sponsor for Confirmation must be confirmed and be registered members of a parish. This series is a good chance for an adult to be confirmed and therefore qualify to serve as a godparent or sponsor for a family member when asked. If you were one of those teens who missed out on Confirmation and would now like to be Confirmed, Click Here to Register for Adult Confirmation Classes now. Classes will take place on five consecutive Sunday afternoons from 1:30 to 2:30, beginning on October 24, in the Large Conference Room of the Parish Office Center. . Confirmation is the third sacrament of the three sacraments of initiation and Catholics should receive the sacrament to be a fully-initiated member of the Church.
Parishioners from other parishes in the Lake-Geauga District are welcome to participate in the sessions. Confirmation ceremony would be celebrated in your home parish as a general rule. Saint John Vianney Parish is located at 7575 Bellflower Road, Mentor, Ohio.
