Conditional confirmation

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q:  Could you explain conditional Confirmation?   If the Celebration of Confirmation for an individual was not recorded and there is no documentation or witness that remembers it, what do you do?  Many thanks!


A:  The Catholic Church has no instructions concerning conditional confirmation. If I had an individual with no documentation or witnesses, I’d do my due diligence to locate the place where the confirmation was to have occurred to locate a record. If unable to turn up anything, I would simply consider that person a candidate for confirmation and make the appropriate preparations.
