Sacrament of Confirmation

Purpose - Confirmation Preparation & Celebration (8th grade)

Incoming 8th grade students who are baptized are eligible for the Sacrament of Confirmation.   8th graders will be Confirmed in the Spring of 2022 at the Cathedral of St. Andrew. 

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.  Brochures and a Sacrament Enrollment form will be provided at the parent meeting.

Important note regarding Sacrament Preparation:  Because of the communal nature of the Sacraments of Eucharist, Reconciliation and Confirmation, students preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation (8th gr.), must be prepared through weekly parish Faith Formation classes.
