  1. Thanks for all your guidance and info. I was sad to learn that a Lutheran (Episcopal, etc) Confirmation is invalid because of the minister. I have witnessed, journeyed with Lutheran young adults to their Confirmation. I was just blown away by their witness to the Triune God and commitment to be an alive follower of Christ. One young man (lifelong family friend) finally, in mid-thirties, answered his call, and is in the seminary. So, we don’t consider his Confirmation valid yet 95% of our masses of Catholic teens being confirmed are lifeless in the faith. Go figure! We have much to learn, and not more technicalities.

    1. Hi Nan,

      Thanks for your comment. All I meant to say in the podcast is that the celebration of confirmation in other denominations is not recognized as an official sacrament in the Roman Catholic Church. However, that wasn’t meant to be a comment about the validity on anyone’s faith. Faith is a gift that comes to us in many ways, not only through the celebration of the sacraments.

      Thanks for you commitment and dedication to this ministry.
