About the Program

The Sacrament of Confirmation preparation program focuses on preparing each student for the reception of the Sacrament. Our Confirmation preparation program is a mandatory two-year program.

Year one focuses on learning about the Sacrament and what we gain by receiving it, beginning to identify how to use our gifts to serve the Church, as well as learning more about the Catholic faith. Year two continues to focus on service, the Church, and our relationship with Christ.

There are several registration options for participating in this program:

  1. Students who are entering into 7th grade or are in 8th grade and have completed the first year of the program during 7th grade.
  2. High School students who have not yet received the Sacrament. (These students should register for High School Delayed Sacraments.)

Registration for in-person classes begins in May and ends the last Friday in September. Registration for distance learning is also available. Students are required to complete the two year online program and attend the Confirmation Retreat and participate in any other group activities.
