Preparing the Rite of Confirmation

Preparing the Rite of Confirmation

The Diocese of San José, Liturgy Office, will be offering a free workshop for clergy, liturgists, catechists, Confirmation coordinators, youth ministers, music ministers, and anyone who will prepare the Rite of Confirmation liturgy for their parish or their parish’s celebration at the Cathedral this year.

This workshop, led by Diana Macalintal, diocesan liturgist, and Melissa Broome, Cathedral liturgist, takes place on Tuesday, January 27, 7:00 - 8:30 p.m., at the Chancery Offices in the St. Joseph Room (900 Lafayette Street, Santa Clara, 95050).

We will examine the theology of Confirmation found in the Rite, good liturgical principles, and practical issues for preparing the liturgy at your parish or at the Cathedral. By the end of the evening, you will have a better understanding of the options given in the Rite and be able to better prepare the various parts of the celebration.

Space is limited; RSVPs are required to Bernard Nemis at Nemis@dsj.org or (408) 983-0126.
