Confirmation Preparation

During the two years of Confirmation preparation, students are invited to personalize their faith and develop an openness to the ways God is calling them to share their faith and gifts for the sake of their Church and the world.


The completion of both the 9th and 10th grades of Faith Formation is required for students who are preparing for Confirmation, including students attending a Catholic high school.  


Students attend regularly scheduled classes approximately once per month.  If a class is missed at St. Jude, students may make up the class at St. Edward.


Grade 9 students are asked to complete a minimum of 5 hours of community service. Confirmation candidates in the 10th grade are also asked to complete an additional minimum of 5 hours of community service.  When a student's hours are complete a summary and reflection are to be turned in to the Faith Formation Coordinator.  (See form above) Service should relate to a Gospel message or to the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy.


All 10th grade students attend the Confirmation retreat.  If a student cannot attend the scheduled date, an alternative retreat must be found. 


In preparation for Confirmation a special 10th grade Reconciliation night will be scheduled.  More details will be posted here regarding the sign up process. Please use the link below to choose your preferred time.
