via The Long Island Catholic:

Confirmations conferred in traditional Latin liturgy

"They were not yet born — nor had their parents probably met — when the new liturgy was introduced in the 1960s, but a dozen teens and pre-teens last Sunday were happy to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in a Latin ceremony.Bishop William Murphy conferred the sacrament last Sunday at St. Agnes Cathedral here for a group of children and one adult whose families regularly attend an approved Tridentine (traditional Latin) Mass offered each Sunday at St. Matthew’s Church in Dix Hills."

I am not sure, but it looks like the top picture in the article shows Bishop Murphy administering the ol' slap of the face, another great Catholic tradition tossed aside in the 60's! Darn hippies ruined everything!
