Registration for Year 1 and Year 2 of Confirmation preparation is now open! Please visit the parish office to pick up a registration form.

St. Mary’s Confirmation preparation process is not just another church program. This two year process is a journey for our Candidates to discover who they are, their purpose in life, and the many ways in which God is present in their lives. During their Confirmation preparation, Candidates are challenged to explore their faith in new ways by experiencing life in a small faith community, serving their community, discussing modern day issues, and getting involved in their St. Mary community.

The process is simple. Candidates meet twice a month; once on a Sunday morning (depending on their year), and once on a weekday evening (depending on their small group assignment). They are also asked to get involved in their community by serving others, attending the St. Mary youth group twice a year, and attending an annual retreat. To learn more, please contact our Youth Ministry Coordinator, Carlos Barba, at cbarba@dsj.org or (408) 430-2736
