The diocese is changing the age of Confirmation to third grade. This change will not take place within the next year (2017-2018). A transition will begin after this and over the next 3 years.
The purpose for the change is to restore the order that the sacraments of initiation were intended to be celebrated: Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist.
