Confirmation strengthens and seals the graces of Baptism, helping us to live as disciples of
Christ in the world.
Two consecutive years of faith formation are required for this sacrament which is normally celebrated in the 8th grade. For example, beginning in the 7th grade, a child should eventually celebrate confirmation in the 8th grade. If, however, a child begins at another time (e.g., the 9d grade), he or she will celebrate confirmation after the second year of formation (e.g., the 10th grade). Those preparing to receive confirmation are required to attend regular meetings, two retreats, and three workshops on the basis of Catholic faith. It is expected that candidates attend Sunday Mass. For students in 7th Grade – High School
