F.A.Q. on Confirmation Ceremonies

How many can I have attend? 

Due to the limited capacity of the church, we are restricted by the number of family members that can attend the Confirmation Service. We are limited to four per family – Confirmand, Sponsor + 2. Masks are required.

Does the Sponsor need to attend? 

Your Sponsor should be a Confirmed, practicing Catholic that will walk with you on your faith journey. They are recorded in the Sacramental Report. Sponsors need not attend the service. A parent or other family member can stand in as proxy.

Where will we sit? 

The Crane Road Church is setup for social-distanced seating by family. There will be assigned seating, in alphabetical order, for each family. We will have ushers to help guide you to your seat.

Will it be live-streamed? 

Yes! We will live-stream all the Confirmation services on the “St. Patrick Parish – St. Charles, IL” YouTube Channel. Subscribe now! Share the link with your family and friends. 

Will there be a rehearsal? 

We will be providing an on-demand video to walk through what to expect for Confirmation. We will also provide a newsletter with additional details on arrival time and length of service when the rehearsal video is available.
