Sacramental Preparation for Confirmation


Good Shepherd Parish offers the sacrament of Confirmation to eligible students in eighth grade, and to those in higher grades who have not yet been confirmed.  

The Diocese of Wilmington requires a two-year preparation to prepare for the reception of Confirmation. Candidates must also have received the sacraments of Baptism and Holy Eucharist.  

The program consists of 24 classes, offered on Sunday mornings from 10am-11:45am. 

Service hours are also required, as is participation in a confirmation retreat. Confirmation will be conferred on May 11, 2016.


If you have any questions, please contact Terri Yackley at the parish office: 410-642-6534, ext. 12, or tyackley@goodshephrd.org.

If you are 18 years of age or older, and have not yet been confirmed, you may receive the sacrament by attending one class.  This celebration occurs on Pentecost Sunday. Please contact Judy Hyde at the Parish Office for information.
