Junior High/Confirmation Prep

Confirmation Program

Students are required to prepare for  two (2) years prior to the celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation.  Classes are held on Mondays or Tuesdays from 7:00-8:15pm from September – April.  Students in Confirmation preparation use the “Chosen” curriculum from Ascension Press.  All participants are expected to:

  • attend class regularly
  • attend Mass fifteen times throughout the year and complete a Mass Reflection form for each
  • complete two service projects yearly (or a total of four over two years) and complete a Service project form for each
  • attend a retreat each year

Confirmation generally takes place for students in eighth grade (the Diocese of Joliet mandates that children must be between the ages of 14 and 16).

See the Religious Education page for further information regarding Registration for Confirmation preparation.
