In 2017, as a result of our Fourth Diocesan Synod, Bishop Paprocki promulgated that our diocese would celebrate the Sacraments of Initiation in their original order (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist) and Confirmation at the age of reason, which in this diocese will normally be third grade. Starting in July of 2021, Bishop Paprocki started administering the Sacraments of Confirmation and First Eucharist at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Springfield. These will be scheduled annually. Children will be prepared as part of their regular religious education classes. To be confirmed, a student must attend and participate in Mass regularly, must attend CFF (Children's Faith Formation) classes regularly and participate in class as well as complete homework assignments.
