Adult Confirmation Preparation Registration
  1. Welcome! The Body of Christ in Springfield is not complete without you!
  2. One of the pastoral goals we have for the coming year is to more accurately attend to the sacramental needs of our parish members. Recently we have been updating our parish registrations and, as we have done so, we notice that we do not have complete records of you or members of your household having received the sacrament of Confirmation. Our records may be wrong, for this we ask a clarification. But we also want to reach out to you in case you would like to be confirmed.
  3. Confirmation is the graced encounter with God that completes the gift we received at Baptism and makes us full members of the Church. It gives us life in the Holy Spirit, makes us missionary disciples of Jesus and empowers us to carry out his ministry as members of his Body, the Church. It is also required to serve as a Godparent or Sponsor for Baptism or Confirmation for others. For whatever reason you or someone in your family has not received the Sacrament, let us help.
  4. * If you wish to receive the sacrament of Confirmation and have been well-formed and feel rooted in the Catholic faith, Adult Confirmation Preparation might be best for you. Please complete our registration form below.
  5. * If you wish to receive Confirmation but also need Baptism and/or First Holy Communion, or if you do not feel well-rooted in the faith or are not currently a practicing Catholic, the preparation process that will best serve you is the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). Please complete this form or contact the Faith Formation office at 703-451-8576 to register for this process. Classes begin early Fall 2019.
  6. * If you and your family have received all the sacraments of initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and First Holy Communion), but would like to update your family account, please use the Comments section to provide updates on basic contact information, parish registration status or sacramental information.
  7. Thank you for your being an active member of our Saint Bernadette Parish Family.
