Confirmation

GENERAL INFORMATION: Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation begins in September of each calendar year.   Confirmation is celebrated in Grade 7 . Students enrolled in the Catholic School system will prepare for Confirmation as part of their academic religion program. Students enrolled in a Public or Private school, must complete Catholic religious instruction (referred to as CATECHETICS of Catechism). Mary Mother of God Parish offers a catechetical program through correspondence. Students who have not received catholic religious instruction between Sacrament years (Grade 2 and Grade 7) are required to complete one additional year of religious instruction (Grades 5 ) in addition to Confirmation Preparation  in order to be properly prepared to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.  Please refer to the CATECHETICS TAB on our website for further information.
