The Sacrament of Confirmation is the fulfillment of the Christian Initiation process begun in Baptism and nourished through the Eucharist. Preparation for the sacrament is a two-year period of time. In our PREP program students begin preparation to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in seventh grade and the sacrament is received in eighth grade. After eighth grade anyone who has not been confirmed but wishes to do so can go through our RCIA program. Please contact Deacon Nick for more information on RCIA.
STUDENTS PREPARING TO RECEIVE THE SACRAMENT OF CONFIRMATION IN THE 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR MUST ATTEND THE FOLLOWING SACRAMENTAL PREP DATES:
Class: Saturday 3/6/21 from 10am-12pm in Kelly Hall at Assumption Church.
