Weekday confirmation mass

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q: During a weekday confirmation mass (ordinary time) do we usually skip the Gloria and Creed (reserved for feast and solemnities)? 


A: The Confirmation Mass always has a Gloria—as long as the presidential prayers are from the Ritual Mass of Confirmation and not, say, the Third Sunday of Lent.

It includes the creed only if it is a Sunday or solemnity. A Saturday late afternoon confirmation Mass in Ordinary Time, for example, would include the creed because the celebration replaces the usual liturgy for Sunday.
