Confirmation

2019-2020

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 Wednesday night Religious Education Classes)
  • Additional preparation provided by the MBVM Religious Education 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. Contact Maria Pallissard.
 
Confirmation is coordinated through the Bishop's Office in the Joliet Diocese.
