Confirmation


Confirmation is celebrated in the spring. Most students will be confirmed in eighth grade, having completed the three year confirmation preparation sequence. (Students beginning the preparation after sixth grade begin with Confirmation I and complete all three years.)

Candidates are expected to be part of the worshipping community, coming to mass each Sunday. As Confirmation marks one’s full initiation into the Church, it is expected that anyone wishing this is a practicing Catholic.

During all three years, students keep a journal chronicling their practice of the corporal and spiritual works of mercy.

Students must have completed one full year of religious education before beginning the confirmation program. In addition, they need to show mastery of the basic religious literacy objectives for each of the grades preceding junior high.

Confirmation I

  • Study of the major events and themes in the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament)
  • Attendance at a retreat day focused on the Gifts of the Spirit.
  • Participation in a group service opportunity with Project Exodus.
  • A field trip to a local synagogue.

Confirmation II

  • Study of the Gospels and a module on Christian morality
  • Attendance at a retreat day focused on discipleship.
  • Participation in a ‘pilgrimmage’ to sites important for Catholic history in Chicago.

Confirmation III

  • Review of the Creed and sacraments, with concentration on Confirmation and a study of the Acts of the Apostles.
  • Attendance at a retreat day focused on the saints and holiness.
  • Participation in an activity with the Night Ministry.

Full information about the Confirmation program (years I, II, and III) for this year is available here.
