Pentecost Confirmation


If you’re an adult who has never completed your initiation into the Church by receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation, you can contact us to learn about our preparation process.

Adults receive Confirmation on Pentecost Sunday (50 days after Easter, usually late May through early June) at Epiphany Cathedral in Venice, Florida.

Preparation occurs throughout the spring (with gatherings on Thursday evenings 7-8:30pm beginning in March).

However, because adults’ situations are often complicated and unique, this preparation process must begin with an interview that needs to happen before Feb 25.

Contact Jerry Harrington, St. Andrew’s Director of Faith Formation at [email protected] or by calling the Faith Formation Office at 239.574.2411 to set up an interview to determine what you would need to do to prepare for this sacrament.

2020 Candidate Group

I will be posting information here for you to access.

I have updated our schedule to reflect our new reality: 2020 Pentecost Confirmation Preparation Schedule (pandemic update)

We will be using Zoom meetings for our post-video conversations. I will be emailing/texting you links to the meetings. If you've never used Zoom, you can join a meeting on a computer or a smartphone/tablet very easily by downloading the app. I believe you do not have to sign up for an account (although you can if you like, they have a free level). Please try to do the downloading before our gathering time. If you have any concerns or problems with this platform, contact me.
