CONFIRMATION CEREMONY INFORMATION
Mass Times: Assignments are listed below. Due to our numbers, changes to assigned Mass times will be considered on a very limited case by case basis. Please understand that each Mass has a limit to the number of Confirmandi due to restrictions by the Archdiocese.
Photography: Arrangements for professional photography are still being worked out. Please look for an email in the future about this.
Clothing: As you determine your clothes for this special day, please refer to these notes:
Young ladies are asked to dress in modest simple clothing – dresses/skirts should reach to just above the knee at least, shoulders covered and the top must be modest regarding tightness and cut; no open backs or low-cut necklines (wear a shawl or sweater if needed); flat or low-heel comfortable shoes- no flip flops or backless shoes should be worn since students will need to be able to walk up to meet the bishop with ease.
Males generally wear slacks and a button down long sleeve shirt (with or without a blazer) or a suit and dress shoes, no tennis/jogging shoes.
All students - Hair should be off the forehead so that the Bishop can anoint you!
Sponsors should also dress with formality and modesty according to the dignity of this liturgical celebration.
