Some parishes have adults asking for information on what they must do to confirm themselves. Many of these adults practice their faith, perhaps they have already received a catechesis before, but now they want to confirm themselves; Because of this situation, they should not be placed in programs of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, nor with young adolescents who are preparing for Confirmation. The author shares in this book the content of a program that she has already beenusing for some years in her parish. Each session begins with a rutial that includes music, biblical readings, liturgical symbols, and signs or symbols of the sacraments of Initiation as a starting point. Using the Ritual for Confirmation as a platform, each session develops theological points expressed in the Ritual. The last session is a post-sacramental session, which invites newly confirmed adults to reflect on the experience of celebrating and receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation, a true mystagogical model.
