Confirmation of Baptized Catholics at the Easter Vigil

Priests are reminded that the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults gives them the faculty to confirm catechumens and candidates at the Easter Vigil.  However, if there are persons who are baptized Catholic and completing their initiation at the Easter Vigil, the pastor must request permission of Bishop David J. Bonnar to confirm them.  A letter of request stating the names of only those individuals who were baptized Catholic and who will be confirmed at the Easter Vigil should be sent to the Bishop’s Office as soon as possible.
