Sacrament of Confirmation

8th gr Confirmation Preparation & Celebration

Incoming 8th grade students who are baptized and have completed 7th grade Faith Formation are eligible for the Sacrament of Confirmation. 8th graders will be Confirmed in the Spring at the Cathedral of St. Andrew (date TBA).

A parent meeting will be held in early October detailing the process and schedule for the year, student and parent responsibilities, the Confirmation retreat (mandatory), and other information.  Registration in the Faith Formation program and Enrollment in the Sacramental Preparation process is required.

Important note regarding Sacrament Preparation:  Students preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation (8th gr.), must attend Catholic Faith Formation classes, at a minimum, in both the year prior to preparing and the year of preparation.  Because of the communal nature of the Sacraments of Eucharist, Reconciliation and Confirmation, students must be prepared through weekly parish Faith Formation classes (Home program is not available).
