Confirmation 8th & 9th Grades

St. Malachy Confirmation Program

St. Malachy's Confirmation program is a two year program. In eighth grade, students explore their identity as children of God and how our bodies and outward appearance, words and actions communicate the beauty of our invisible soul to the world. The ninth grade program utilizes Decision Point, a Confirmation curriculum developed by Matthew Kelly and Dynamic Catholic. Students are expected to attend class, participate in activities, discussion and assignments, complete service hours, and attend the Confirmation retreat. Students are confirmed in the spring of ninth grade.
