The Cathedral's Sacramental Preparation program of formation prepares our children and young people to receive the Sacraments of Penance, Confirmation, and First Holy Communion.
The Diocese of Spokane instituted the 'restored order' of the Sacraments of Christian Initiation over 15 years ago. It is therefore the custom in the Diocese of Spokane that the Sacraments of Confirmation and First Holy Communion are conferred at the same Mass. The Sacrament of Penance is received prior to Confirmation and First Holy Communion.
For some excellent written and video resources explaining the restored order of the Sacraments of Christian Initiation, please visit the Archdiocese of Denver's dedicated page here.
The Mass of Confirmation and First Holy Communion will be offered by Bishop Daly
on Sunday, May 28, 2017 at 9 a.m.
