Confirmation completes the Sacraments of Initiation in the Catholic faith. It is a serious step in the faith formation of our Catholic youth. In Confirmation, the power and presence of the Holy Spirit are intensified, and we receive a special grace by which our faith is deepened and strengthened, uniting us more closely to Christ, which helps us to spread and defend our faith.

Student Confirmation 8th Grade

At St. Joan of Arc, our students are confirmed in the 8th grade. We use the Confirmation program Chosen by Ascension Press. This 24-week DVD/discussion-based program is used over 7th and 8th grades, providing intellectual and spiritual readiness in preparing students for the reception of Confirmation. Our 8th graders also attend a one-day Confirmation Retreat. This offers students an opportunity to step away from their typical day and spend quality time with the Holy Spirit. It also allows them to dig deeper into what the sacrament of Confirmation means for them.

Requirements, Assignments, and Additional Info

Participation in two years of a Catholic School religion class or a Youth Faith Formation class before the celebration of the sacraments is required.
