Bishop Deeley will perform the Sacrament of Confirmation for baptized Catholic teenagers and adults in Caribou, Bangor and Falmouth
Bishop Robert Deeley will visit three parishes in the coming weeks to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation with already baptized teenagers and adults living in the respective areas. Masses will take place:
Friday, May 6
Holy Rosary Church
34 Vaughn Street, Caribou
Friday May 20
St. Mary’s Church
768 Ohio Street, Bangor
Friday, June 3
Church of the Holy Martyrs of North America

The Easter season is a time when the Catholic Church traditionally celebrates new life. During Easter Vigil Masses, new members were baptized and people from other Christian traditions were welcomed into full communion with the Catholic Church through Confirmation and the First Eucharist. The three masses in May and June are intended for Catholics already baptized to complete their initiation and receive these same sacramental graces.
“It is truly an evening of grace, and we are very grateful that you have heard the Lord’s call and have come here and are ready to answer ‘yes’ to the profession of faith and go. from here to bring your faith to the world,” Bishop Deeley said during one of the celebrations last spring.
All are invited to attend masses in Caribou, Bangor and Falmouth. For more information, visit www.portlanddiocese.org/content/confirmation-catholic-teens-and-adults.
