Confirmation Mass Dress Code & Photography:

Boy’s Dress Code: White shirt, tie and dress pants, suit or sport coat recommended but not required. Dress shoes with socks should be worn. No earrings.

Girl’s Dress Code: Modest dresses or skirts – outfits appropriate for church. No flip-flops or open-backed sandals. No real or artificial flowers in the hair which may prevent the archbishop from easily imposing his hand as he anoints them with Sacred Chrism.

Every student, parent & sponsor should wear clothing appropriate for Mass, IE modest dresses, slacks, collard shirts, no jeans or tennis shoes.

Photography: Each student will receive a gift of an individual photo receiving the sacrament and a group photo. You may take pictures from your pew but we ask that you do not get up during Mass. After Mass, please do not leave as we will bring the students into the sanctuary for the group photo.

There will be a reception in the parish hall immediately after the group photo is taken. Confirmation certificates will be handed out after Mass.
