The fee for Confirmation Prep varies depending on the grade level and number of students enrolled per family. Catechist's children attend for free as a Thank You for their generous stewardship. If you are interested in being a Catechist for Faith Formation or Confirmation Prep, please contact the parish office.
CELEBRATING THE SACRAMENT . CONFIRMATION
All students who are planning on celebrating their Confirmation must complete 2 full years of Confirmation Prep (7th and 8th grade). If your child is entering 8nd grade and did not attend Confirmation Prep classes in 7th grade, or if you have a child older than 8th grade who has not yet celebrated his/her Confirmation, please contact the parish office for Sacramental Prep options.
Students are prepared for this sacrament through a parish-implemented sacramental prep program. Each class (Confirmation I for 7th grade and Confirmation II for 8th grade) meets on alternating weeks throughout the school year. A lock-in and retreat, as well as a requirement of stewardship, are part of the students' preparation requirements.
