Confirmation Prep - 6th-8th Grade

Our two-year program is designed to prepare the young people of our community to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.

Registration is OPEN for then 2021-22 Confirmation Prep Program

St. Edna has made a change! As of July 2020, we made the decision to shift the age of confirmation and confirmation prep. We have moved confirmation prep to the fall of a child’s 8th grade year. Confirmation prep now starts with the fall of a child’s 6th grade year.

Students who are in 8th grade or higher and who have completed both years of confirmation prep will be confirmed the November following the end of the 2nd year of prep. In other words, if your 7th grade child completes Year 2 of confirmation prep in April 2022, s/he will be confirmed in November 2022, as an 8th grader.

The content of our program is evolving! Last year, due to Covid regulations, our program, both assignments and class meetings was 100% online. This year, as we navigate the rapidly changing circumstances around Covid, we are offering a hybrid online and in person experience. We will evaluate the viability of this experience late in the fall to determine how to proceed in the spring.

Read below to see where you student falls within the new Confirmation Prep Program Guidelines!

Even though we have made the shift from 10th grade to 8th grade for the Rite of Confirmation, confirmation prep is available to all middle school and high school students. Students who will be in 6th grade or higher in Fall 2021 may be enrolled in Year 1 of the program which will be held during the Fall 2021 school year. Students who have completed Year 1 and who will be in 7th grade or higher in Fall 2021 may enroll in Year 2 of the program which will also be held during the Fall 2021 school year.
