Confirmation 8th & 9th Grades

St. Malachy Confirmation 2021-2022

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 our outward appearance, words and actions, communicate the beauty of our invisible soul to the world. The ninth grade program will utilize Chosen, a Confirmation curriculum developed by Father Mike Schmitz and Ascension Press. 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.

Attendance Policy

Through the Sacrament of Confirmation, we develop our relationship with the Holy Spirit. In order to learn and begin that life-long relationship, students are expected to attend all classes. However, if class is missed, you are expected to let the teacher know ahead of time. If students miss class, they will be expected to make up the class within the week of the absence. After three absences, students and parent will be required to meet with Kimberly Souba, Confirmation Prep Coordinator. If another class is missed, students and parents will be required to meet with Father Gifford to determin whether or not the student will be able to move forward with Confirmation.
