Agree Annie. Fargo is a brilliant diocese, for this and many other reasons.
This was the order in which I received these sacraments as a 1950s Anglican. My cradle Catholic cousins, in the late 30s, received First Holy Communion at the age of 7 and made their Confirmations as soon as possible afterwards - before they had grown out of their white dresses. I kid you not!
I think it makes a lot more sense to confirm before First Holy Communion, MM, adolescents need all the help they can get before adolescence, or it really is The Rite of Exit (as it's known in our house). Don't know anything at all about Fargo, Laura, but if the change in order of the Sacraments is anything to go by, it must be good!
