Archbishop Lucas enjoys attending events, presiding at sacramental ceremonies and meeting with the people in the archdiocesan parishes. To request the Archbishop’s presence at your event, ceremony or conference, please submit a request either by email or in writing to the Office of the Archbishop. Please include:
- Details about your special event (date, location)
- The approximate length of the event
- How you’d like the Archbishop to participate
- Number of people you expect to attend
- Your personal contact information
It is preferable for these requests to be submitted twice per year – in January for August-December events and in July for January-June events. Such requests can be made by using the Confirmation, Liturgy and Event Request Form or click here to submit your request electronically.
Please send all Archbishop requests via email to email@example.com, or by mail to Office of the Archbishop.
Planning Eucharistic Liturgies with the Archbishop
For all events in which the Archbishop will be participating in a Eucharistic Celebration, please complete the Planning form for Eucharistic Liturgies with the Archbishop and return it to the Office of the Archbishop no later than one month before the event. You may submit your form via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to the Office of the Archbishop. Please refer to the Supplemental Information for help in completing this form.
Planning for Confirmation with the Archbishop
Presiding at confirmations is part of the Archbishop’s call to sanctify. To plan your confirmation with the Archbishop, take a look at the Guidelines for the Sacrament of Confirmation. Please follow these guidelines for formation of candidates and for the liturgy.
Requests to schedule Confirmation are accepted twice a year, in January for those requested during August-December, and in July for those requested in January-June. As you make plans to schedule your parish confirmation, please contact Linda Thomsen to check the Archbishop’s availability. Once you find three proposed dates, you can make a formal request by submitting the Confirmation, Liturgy and Event Request Form or click here to submit your request electronically. Once a Confirmation date has been set and the date draws near, please also submit the Planning form for Eucharistic Liturgies with the Archbishop, one month prior to Confirmation. Please refer to the Supplemental Information for help in completing this form.
Please submit your forms via email to email@example.com or by mail to the Office of the Archbishop.
If you have any questions about formation for the Sacrament of Confirmation, please contact:
