Confirmation – Answering the Call

Formation to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation is a two year program through the parish school or weekly religious education class for children in the 7th and 8th grade. In addition to weekly course work, the preparation includes completing service in three component areas and a written reflection about each area of service. During the 8th grade, all Confirmandi attend a day of Retreat at a Catholic Retreat Center.
