"All sacraments are an encounter with Christ" (YOUCAT 193).
Confirmation at St. Leo's typically takes place in the spring of eighth grade. Those enrolling in Confirmation preparation need to have completed at least one year of religous education prior to the year they begin Confirmaiton preparation. For most of our candidates that means they were either in seventh grade Faith Formation or they were enrolled in Catholic School. For candidates in high school that means they were either in eighth grade Faith Formation or in Life Teen High School Youth Ministry. Additionally, candidates need to be in religious education for their current grade. For our eighth graders that means Faith Formation or Catholic School and for our high schoolers that means Life Teen.
Our Confirmation guidebook (link below) has all of the class options and dates for this year, as well as the assignments and information about Confirmation preparation. Our Confirmation dates are May 17th & 18th at 6 pm with Msgr. Winslow.
