We have a candidate preparing to celebrate the Reception into the Full Communion of the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil. This person was baptized and confirmed as a Lutheran. Do we recognize Lutheran confirmations as valid sacraments? Or do we confirm him at the Easter Vigil?

According to canon lawyer, John Huels, “Protestant denominations are not recognized as having valid orders, so persons baptized in those ecclesial communities should be confirmed during the rite of reception into full communion.” For more information, see this post: http://bit.ly/WP5ma
