Confirmation 2021 Details
Dear Confirmation Parents,
Happy Easter! (Yes, we continue to celebrate Easter for several more weeks.)
We're excited that your son or daughter is in the final stages of preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation, and we'd like to share details about the celebration of the sacrament at St. Aloysius Church.
First, the Archdiocese of Washington has announced that Bishop Dorsonville is scheduled to administer the sacrament of Confirmation at St. Aloysius Church on
Wednesday, October 13, 2021, at 7:00 PM
. Bishop Dorsonville is an auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese and has celebrated Confirmation here several times in the past. We look forward to welcoming him again.
Rehearsal for the sacrament of Confirmation will be held the night before on
Tuesday, October 12
at 7:00 PM
In preparation for the sacrament, we ask all students preparing for the sacrament of Confirmation to attend four short Sunday evenings of reflection on
Sunday, September 5, September 12, September 19, and September 26 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM
. Dinner will be provided.
All who would like to be Confirmed as asked to write a short, simple letter to the bishop in order to introduce themselves and formally request the sacrament. A template for the letter can be found
here on our parish website
. Please complete the letter to the bishop by
September 1, 2021
Last but not least, we ask that you take some time to complete
this online information form
to provide all of the details that we will need to record in our sacramental records. The online form also includes a place for you to upload both your baptismal certificate and your letter to the bishop. Please complete the online form by

We look forward to continuing to work with you and your teens as they complete their preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation!
