Preparation for Confirmation begins in 8th grade. The sacrament of Confirmation takes place in the Spring, according to the bishop’s schedule.
Parents of eighth grade students will receive information regarding a meeting in October, which both parents and their eighth graders are expected to attend.
Highlights of the Confirmation program include: A full-day retreat, parish involvement experiences, a weekly journal, and interviews of the student’s parents, sponsor and another member of the parish community.
Parents are the primary catechists of their children. Please continue to take an active role in your child’s preparation by taking them to Mass every Sunday, praying at home, discussing what they learn in CCD at home, and talking to them about what the Confirmation and being part of the Church family mean to you.
