Hi, guys —

I was baptize Catholic and went to Catholic school but I was never confirmed and I am now 61.

I have been away from the Church for so long but I want to come back.

  • Can you help me?
  • What should I do?

Thank-you so much!

Hello Bette,

You could simply call your nearest Catholic Church rectory and tell them your desire.

They might ask you to enroll in an  RCIA program, which at the end, enables you to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation. . . . or the pastor might have an alternative idea.

Congratulations on deciding to act upon your inspiration!
