At St. Francis Xavier Parish, we typically celebrate the sacrament of Confirmation during the fall of a student’s ninth-grade year. Preparation for this sacrament begins in the fall of the student’s eighth-grade year.
If your child attends Public School:
Our 2018-2019 eighth-graders in public school participate in a combination Edge/Confirmation program on Thursday evenings from 6:45-8:30 (they began Sept. 6). Three nights each month will be taught as an Edge night, and one will focus on Confirmation. Regardless of the material, the days/times will remain the same. Registration for Confirmation is included in the Edge registration. Confirmation will be in the fall of 2019.
If your child attends St. Francis Xavier School:
Our 2018-2019 eighth-graders who attend St. Francis Xavier School join their public-school friends for Confirmation classes one night each month on Thursday evenings from 6:45-8:30 (they began Sept. 20). They need to register for Confirmation only. Confirmation will be in the fall of 2019.
