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.

The Confirmation will be held on Tuesday, October 6th, at 6:30PM. Confirmands and sponsors will need to be in the Church at 5:45PM for practice.   Further confirmation requirements, including fees, are listed on the registration form below. For any additional questions, please contact the parish office at (504) 393–2334, or by email fharrison@standrewparish.net.

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 be distributed at a later date.

After the Mass, we will have a professional photographer from The Portrait Gallery available to take formal pictures of your child with the Archbishop. The picture information will be sent out via email.
