Confirmation marks the completion of the 3 sacraments of initiation. Students in grades 8 or 9 who have consistently attended CCD or a Catholic school for a minimum of 2 years (grades 7 and 8) are eligible to receive the sacrament of Confirmation. In addition, Confirmation candidates are asked to be of service to the parish community or neighborhood and attend the Confirmation retreat. The candidate must also attend Sunday Mass on a weekly basis as they are requesting full membership into the Catholic Church through Confirmation.
