Confirmation in our parish is celebrated in 8th grade. The sacrament of Confirmation perfects Baptismal grace; it is the sacrament which roots us more firmly into Christ, strengthens our bond with the Church, associates us more closely with her mission, and helps us bear witness to the Christian faith in words and deeds. (CCC#1316) The Sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated each year, generally during the month of March, by the Bishop of Wilmington. Our parish holds a Confirmation Preparation Program for all students in the 8th grade in our parish community, included are CRE students, private academy students and IHM school students. It is a requirement by the Dioceses that all 8th grade students complete the program prior to receiving the sacrament. Any student under the age of 18 may also participate in the prep program, following an interview with a staff member, in order to be confirmed. This program is in addition to your other Religious Education Program, namely CRE or a Catholic school.
The fee for Confirmation preparation is $85 per candidate.
