I was baptized as an infant and received catechism while in the 2nd grade, then went through confession and received first Holy Communion. When I was 9, my parents moved away from the area and never attended church again. This left me and my sister yearning to go back. This was a long time ago. So long, that when I did go back to church in college…it had drastically changed. I have remained Catholic in my heart though. Defending my faith to protestant Christians. My husband has finally conceded to allow me to go back. I have discovered I need to be ‘confirmed’. But I wonder if I was confirmed years ago and just dont remember. I never left believing in God or respecting my Catholic roots. I am back, and it seems I am having trouble with all the ‘rules’.
I have tried 3 local parishes and finally found an adult confirmation class that seems to be geared towards people like me that may have fallen through the cracks. An RCIA class I started seemed to be geared towards middle or high schoolers.
When did confirmation at the high school level start?
