Maternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic Church


 Confirmation is coordinated through the

Bishop's Office in the Joliet Diocese. 

 Maternity BVM Parish Confirmation Program

consists of at least 2 years of preparation,

usually in the 7th and 8th grades. 


There are 2 components of Confirmation Preparation:

Classwork (either through the Catholic School System or Religious Education Classes)

Additional preparation provided by the MBVM Religious Education Confirmation Program.


In order to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation,

students need to be baptized and have received

the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist.

If your child has not received these sacraments,

we can help you.
