Confirmations of Adult (18+)
Updated April 20, 2021
Cardinal Tobin has delegated pastors, administrators and chaplains to confirm adult (18+) baptized Catholics on any Sunday (Saturday evening) other than the Easter Vigil. This faculty applies through December 31, 2021. No further delegation (i.e. from the regional Bishop as heretofore) is necessary in 2021.
The the specifics of this delegation and the Guidelines for 2021 Celebrations of Confirmation are available here.
