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). It is expected that candidates attend Sunday Mass. For students in 7th Grade – High School
We use the Chosen program and Theology of the body for Teens. The Bible and YOUCAT(Youth Catechism) are a helpful resources for class.
