The preparation for Confirmation is a comprehensive two year program which meets weekly between September and April, typically beginning in the 7th grade. We utilize Ascension Press’ CHOSEN program as our curriculum. The purpose of the first year of formation is to make sure that the student is firmly grounded in their faith and truly desires the sacrament. In addition to the classroom lessons, each year the candidates will take part in a Confirmation specific retreat, complete Mercy Experiences designed to build up the community (10 hours of service in 7th grade/20 hours in 8th grade) and, in the second year of preparation, will write a letter to the pastor requesting Confirmation. The goal of this formation is to teach us how to live as a fully initiated Catholic Christian who has discerned fully the responsibilities that Confirmation confers upon us. The Rite of Confirmation is celebrated during the spring of the 8th grade year, however there are always students who are older that join us for this process.
