Welcome Confirmation Class of 2020!

Each candidate must attend Faith Formation classes for two consecutive years and successfully complete the course of study in order to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. During the upcoming year, significant participation will go into preparing for a participant to take part in the Confirmation Mass on Wednesday, March 18, 2020 at 6:30 PM and to become a disciple of Christ. This preparation will involve the confirmands, teachers, sponsors and most critically, the parents. Your child's faith journey starts with you at home. We are here to direct them into a deeper Spiritual commitment. 

What is Confirmation?

Confirmation is the Sacrament in which baptized persons receive a special grace, which strengthens them for the profession of the Christian faith. In the Latin Rite, Confirmation is usually conferred by the Bishop, who lays his hands on the recipients, make the Sign of the Cross with chrism on their foreheads, while he says:

"Be sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit"

The young people of SS. Barbara and Louise de Marillac Parish who receive Confirmation obtain a special grace to profess the faith. On their souls are imprinted an indelible character, and so Confirmation can only be received once. When preparing for this Sacrament, the young person typically selects the name of a favorite saint for his Confirmation name.
