About

This is a program designed to prepare your child to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. It is a two year process, and children must register each year. All 7th and 8th graders should be registered for Confirmation Preparation through Holy Spirit Parish. If your child attends St. Joseph School, please notify Allison via email: allison@holyspiritcatholic.org, as your child will be exempt from the FIRST YEAR ONLY of Sacramental Prep Lessons. Classes are monthly on Wednesdays and Sundays (required attendance at ONE session per month) from 6:00-8:00pm. View a full calendar of meeting dates here.

 

We highly encourage all 7th and 8th graders to attend Youth Group which is every Wednesday from 6:00-8:00pm (aside from those dedicated to Confirmation Preparation). Click here for a schedule of Spring 2019 dates.
