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 to be Confirmed in the fall 2018, 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; one Saturday for class requirements (Saturday, May 5, 2018, from 8-5PM)  and one Saturday for retreat (Saturday, August 11, 2018, from 9-5PM), lunch will be provided for both days. Both Saturday obligations are mandatory. There will be a make-up date for the class only on Saturday, June 2, 2018, from 8-5PM. There is no make-up date for the retreat. There is also a requirement of four hours of service that will be discussed in the class.

The Confirmation will be held in September or October (date to be decided on by the Archbishop). Further confirmation requirements, including fees, are listed on the registration form below.

Confirmation will be held (date tba). Confirmands and sponsors will need to be in the Church at 5:45PM for practice.  

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 the day of the retreat on Saturday, August 11, 2018.

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 6:00 pm until approximately 6:30 pm. They will also be taking pictures during Confirmation. The picture information will go home at the retreat on Saturday, August 11, 2018.

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