WHAT IS CONFIRMATION?
In the Diocese of Erie, the sacrament of Confirmation is received in 11th grade (except for those in the process of RCIA). The diocese requires two full years of religious education preparation classes before the reception of any sacrament. In addition to two years of classes, students are also asked to complete service hours in order to be eligible to receive the sacrament. Students must attend religious education classes through all of 10th grade and through 11th grade to complete the two year preparation period.
Opportunities for services hours are offered throughout the year. If you have any questions about Confirmation please contact the Director of Faith Formation.
