In the early centuries of the Church, congregations would gather together at Easter for the rite of initiation administered by the bishop. There was something – there is something – about sharing those significant and transformative moments with the rest of the Church. As such, the diocese offers opportunities each year during Eastertide to celebrate together the rites of Holy Baptism and Confirmation, Reception or Reaffirmation.

In 2019, we will do area confirmation a little differently, and instead host a diocesan-wide confirmation at our Convocation on May 11 at Procter Center. We are gearing up for a great day of celebration that will have three bishops, children’s activities, workshops, listening sessions and more. We will end the day with the diocesan-wide confirmations so that family members who would like to attend the confirmation but not come for the entire day can arrive later.

More information about the convocation and the diocesan-wide confirmation will be coming soon. If you have any questions, contact Ann Sabo at or 800.582.1712 ext. 103.
