acellarinaday: Looking for a term.

I'm trying to remember the word for potential Confirmation recipients before they're Confirmed. I feel like there was a term for it - I can remember being called it when I was Confirmed - but of course, now that I need to use it, I can't remember what it is. Not exactly "applicants"... but something to that extent. If anyone out there can think of anything, it'd be really helpful.

I think you're looking for "candidates."

Is St. Isidore your patron?

Yep. Taking a survey or was that apropos of something?

You are a wonderful resource for the various Catholic communities on LJ and Isidore came to mind, that's all.

How about confirmandi? Is that post-confirmation?

That's the Latin word we translate "Confirmation Candidate" but she specifically said she was looking for something like applicants, which implied the English, so giving the Latin didn't even occur to me. Good call.

And here's me like "DUH!"

But yes, that's exactly what I was looking for.
