St. Mary’s Confirmation preparation is not a program. It is a journey. This two-year journey is a time during which our Candidates discover who they are, God’s love for them 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 brothers and sisters, discussing modern day issues and participating in the life of the parish.

Candidates meet twice a month; once on a Sunday morning, and once on a weekday evening. Candidates are also invited to serve their community and attend the St. Mary youth group. Second year Candidates attend a retreat at the end of their preparation process, before their Confirmation Mass. Registration for High School Confirmation preparation begins in June 2024. To learn more about this process, please contact our Director of Youth Ministry, Carlos Barba, at or (408) 337-2668
