Confirmation Discipleship Formation Sessions this year are for students who will graduate in 2021 or for older high school students (must be a Junior on the day of Confirmation) who have yet to be Confirmed. You can find the registration Packet, Sponsor Agreement Form, and other forms needed below or you can contact Charity Firestone and pick them up in the Holy Spirit Parish Office. If you are needing to be confirmed but have already graduated high school, you will need to contact Liz Gregorius for RCIA at 334-324-1320 or [email protected]
Confirmation Candidates need to choose a Sponsor BY THE AUGUST SESSION. The Sponsor Agreement Form needs to be filled out and brought back to a Confirmation Session or to the Holy Spirit Office. Requirements for Sponsors are listed on the form. The Sponsor can NOT be a parent of the Candidate. A frequently asked question is: can someone be a Sponsor if they aren’t able to be here for Confirmation? The answer is, yes, if your Sponsor can not physically be at Confirmation, you can have a proxy stand-in for the Sponsor. If that is your circumstance, please let Charity Firestone know.
DRESS CODE FOR CONFIRMATION:
Girls – Modest is key. White dresses that hit the knee (or come very close). Shoulders must be covered. If you have a dress that has straps, please plan to wear a white shrug, shall, or cover over it. NO strapless dresses. Modest/nude or tan shoes. You will be walking up steps to kneel before the Archbishop at Confirmation. Please make sure that your dress and shoes are appropriate. Practice bowing, genuflecting, and kneeling to make sure your dress covers well and that you’re able to walk up steps. Another note: it’s easier to find white dresses in the spring and summer so we suggest you don’t wait until right before Confirmation to look for your dress.
Boys – Khaki dress slacks. White button-down shirt. Red tie or a tie with red in it. (Bow tie or neck tie is acceptable.) Dark Sports Jacket. Dress shoes.
