“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 8:14-17

Adult Catholics (ages 18 and older) who have been baptized, received First Eucharist, and are practicing their faith, but have not celebrated the Sacrament of Confirmation are invited to participate in a preparation program.  This 6-8 week process emphasizes the basics of Catholic teaching with topics covering the Trinity, sacraments, prayer, morality, and more.
