What adults are eligible for confirmation?
Those adults who:
• are baptized into the Roman Catholic church (those baptized in another Christian church are eligible for confirmation through the Rite of Reception into the Full Communion of the Catholic Church, and are not the subject of these guidelines)
• have celebrated their First Communion
• are not presently barred from the sacraments (most commonly for reasons relating to an irregular marriage situation)
• are capable of renewing their baptismal promises
Generally, this guideline refers to persons who are baptized Catholics who have received some catechesis within the Catholic Christian community. These are active adult Catholics who for some reason did not receive Confirmation at the usual age. Proof of their baptism comes in the form of a copy of their baptismal certificate obtained from their parish of baptism.
