Confirmation at St. Jude celebrates the Holy Spirit working in the hearts of young people. The Confirmation process is a time of discernment for our teens to explore, challenge, grow and eventually take ownership of the Catholic Faith.  The process involves not only the teens, but the whole family and entire parish community. Confirmation is a two year process which starts in their Freshmen, Sophomore, or Junior year of high school.

Confirmation Process includes:

  • Attend Confirmation Nights, which are held one time per month on Sunday’s from 6:30-8:00pm.
  • Attend 5 Youth Nights throughout the year, which are held on week days, with additional dates on Sunday’s for those that have week day conflicts. Additional opportunities include Inspiration at Six Flags, Santa Barbara Youth Day, and Los Angeles Youth Day and City of Saints.
  • Attend a Confirmation Retreat.
  • Complete 2 service projects throughout each year of Confirmation.
  • Make the commitment to attend Mass as part of your family's routine.


Registration Confirmation will be in person this year. Registration is during the following times:

  • July 9, 10, and 11 from 5 – 8 PM and July 14 after all Sunday Masses
  • August 20, 21, and 22 from 5 – 8 PM and August 25 after all Sunday Masses
  • September 3, 4, and 5 from 5 – 8 PM and September 7 and 8 after all Masses

Registration closes September 8th

Be prepared to register by bringing your teen’s baptism certificate*, your payment and any other documents required.  Permission slips and releases will be signed at the time of registration, so a parent or guardian needs to be present to complete the paperwork.  

*if you have already turned in your baptismal certificate during your Year 1 registration, a second copy is not needed.

All Year 2 Confirmation candidates will be required to have their Baptismal Certificate, Sponsor form, Saint form, and Service forms turned in before registering for Year 2 Confirmation. 

You can pay for just Confirmation or pay for Confirmation and the retreat at the same time.  It's up to you!
