September through May

The purpose of Confirmation is threefold: It affirms our baptisms, provides us instruction in the Christian faith, and connects our faith to our daily lives. Confirmation is a 3 1/2-year program for 6th-9th graders. High School youth are encouraged to take part in our Junior Guide program and be mentors to the younger students. Students are confirmed in January of their 9th grade year.
