…… the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. For “by the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. ~ Catechism of the Catholic Church
Sacrament of Confirmation
Students prepare to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation during the 7th and 8th grades in our Religious Education program. Throughout this period, students participate in several preparation sessions, choose a Confirmation sponsor and Confirmation name. Following the completion of these sessions and service opportunities, the 8th grade students make their Confirmation with the Bishop of the Diocese of Grand Rapids at the Cathedral of St. Andrew in the spring.
