In 2005…the Diocese of Tyler started celebrating the “restored order” of the Sacraments of Initiation. Restored order refers to the practice of celebrating the Sacraments of Initiation in the following order: Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist…restor[ing] the Holy Eucharist to the climax of initiation.”

General guideline—a journey of prayer and formation.
Parents, as primary educators of their children, may believe their children need more or less time to be ready to receive their sacraments. These instances should be reviewed with each family as they come forward.
“People with special needs are our Catholic brothers and sisters, beloved of God.”
