Date of Confirmation
The Diocese has set the date for 2018 Confirmation at St. Mary’s for Saturday, October 13, at 7 p.m. Candidates and their one sponsor should be at the parish center by 6:30 p.m. on October 13. Spread the word to sponsors, family, and friends.
Confirmation I, II, and III Students
SoF and St. Mary’s Confirmation students: Please remember all paper work for your previous year in Confirmation preparation is to be completed and turned in directly to Kathleen Eckerman at the parish office before September 5 so the pastor can review your file. All School of Faith students in the Confirmation III program are required to register for School of Faith and attend the Confirmation Countdown classes taught by the parish priests on September 12, 19, 26, October 3, and 10. St. Mary’s school students in Confirmation III are required to attend these classes as well.
Note from Bishop Nickless regarding the Sacrament of Confirmation Mass:
I ask that you make a special point of encouraging the young people to be confirmed (and their sponsors) to dress appropriately. Boys should wear dress slacks (no jeans), a dress shirt with tie (if possible), optional sport/suit jacket or sweater, dress socks and dress shoes. Girls should wear a dress or skirt (must be knee length or longer) or dress slacks, dress shoes, and blouses or sweaters must cover chest, back and shoulders.
