This home movie captures James Kennedy’s confirmation ceremony on April 27, 1969, in Houston. After begrudgingly posing for pictures, James joins several other adolescents outside a Catholic church in preparation for their participation in the sacrament. Following the ceremony, the Kennedy family returns to their house for a small celebration.
