Confirmation

In Confirmation we confirm the promises made on our behalf in Baptism. It helps us to focus on the missionary dimensions of our baptismal commitment. The Sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated in the fall of 11th grade.

If you are interested in signing up for Confirmation for the fall 2017, please complete the registration form below, attach a check made out to St. Andrew the Apostle Church and return to the parish office to reserve a spot, between the hours of 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM – Monday through Friday. Our Confirmation Seminar will consist of two Saturday obligations (May 6, 2017, from 10AM-5PM)  to fulfill the six hours of class requirements and one Saturday for retreat (August 12, 2017, from 10AM-5PM), lunch will be provided for both days. Both Saturday obligations are mandatory. The make-up date for the class that was held on May 6th will be held on Saturday, June 10, 2017, from 10AM-5PM. There is no make-up date for the retreat.

Confirmation will be held on Thursday, October 5, 2017, at 7:00PM. Confirmands and sponsors will need to be in Immaculata Hall at 5:45PM for pictures.  

To show particular reverence on this occasion, the Dress Code for the Confirmation Mass is as follows:

The young ladies should wear an appropriate dress, or a skirt and blouse, with dress shoes. The dress or skirt should be of a modest length, and the tops should cover the shoulders. The young men should wear dress slacks, a dress shirt, dress shoes and a tie.  A sports coat may be worn, but not during the Mass. All of the Confirmands will be wearing red robes for Mass over their clothes. All robes will go home at retreat on Saturday, August 12, 2017, if there are in.

Prior to the Mass, we will have a professional photographer from The Portrait Gallery available to take formal pictures of your child with and/or without the Archbishop. Pictures will be taken from 5:45 pm until approximately 6:30. They will also be taking pictures during Confirmation. The picture information will go home at the retreat.

There will be a reception in the cafeteria following the Confirmation Mass hosted by the Ladies Guild.
