Confirmation Program

Dear Parents/ Guardians.


Welcome to the Good Shephard Catholic Parish Confirmation Program. We are very thankful God has called you and your High School Student to receive his/her Sacrament of Confirmation.  I look forward to you and your family being an integral part of the expansion of God’s kingdom both to Good Shepherd Catholic Parish and to the world.

As the Confirmation coordinator for this program, I am privileged to journey with the students and their families during this time of preparation.  I am here to encourage and support your students to continue to grow and strengthen them in their spiritual and religious life. 


At the Good Shepherd Catholic Parish, we offer a two-year Confirmation program and at the end of Year 2 students will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. 

All sessions take place at St. Mary's

506 N Garden St, Visalia, CA 93291, USA

I began my service with the Catholic Church after attending a Youth Recollection Retreat during High school.  Throughout the rest of my life’s journey I began participating in many Youth and Adult retreats and volunteered in various ways in various parishes.  When it came time for my son to prepare for his confirmation, I decided to become a Confirmation Teacher.  I am now on my 5th year as a Teacher and my 3rd year as the coordinator.  I am blessed and pleased to answer the call to give of my time, talent and treasure to Mother church.
