Confirmation for 8th Grade
The sacrament of Confirmation is transitioning to the to the 8th grade year starting this fall and will take place within the EDGE program (an existing program for 7th and 8th grade students). Edge meets on the 3rd and 4th Sundays of the month with the 3rd Sunday of the month being a catechetical session which is where the 8th graders will receive their Confirmation instruction. While 8th graders are encouraged to attend both EDGE sessions, the 3rd Sunday of the month will be required for those preparing for the sacrament.
As we transition to confirmation in 8th grade, we will continue to offer a high school confirmation program for sophomores for the next two years. This means that if a current 8th grader chooses not to be confirmed this year, there will not be a high school program in place by the time they reach their sophomore year.
Registration information: 8th graders: If your 8th grader is planning to receive the sacrament of Confirmation, please register by September 1. The program fee is $50.
