The Most Rev. Jerome Listecki, archbishop of Milwaukee, confirmed 19 juniors at St. Lawrence Seminary in Mount Calvary on Sunday, April 29.

Family members came from as near-by as Milwaukee and from as far away as Texas and Florida to witness the ceremony. St. Lawrence Seminary staff member Margie Buelow coordinated a preparation program that began in the fall and included, among other elements, a series of guest speakers who gave the students insights into what it means to be an adult Catholic as a married person, as a Capuchin Franciscan, and as a diocesan priest.
Students used various resources to pick their confirmation names. Many already had a favorite saint whose life they wanted to emulate. Others chose the name of a family member and then researched information about the saint.
