Confirmation

Confirmation I & II

St. Patrick’s Confirmation program is a two-year commitment, which begins for most students in the 9th grade after they have completed grades 1-8 in a Religious Education Program. Students attending a Catholic High School enter the Confirmation program in grade 10. The Confirmation Program at Saint Patrick Parish follows the curriculum guidelines published by the Archdiocese of Boston. All parish Confirmation programs in the Archdiocese of Boston have the same requirements: weekly Mass attendance, faith development, service to the Parish and the greater community and a Confirmation focused retreat.

Upon completion of the program, the young person participates in celebrating the Sacrament of Confirmation. The goals of the Confirmation process are that all candidates be able to understand, appreciate and articulate the basic doctrines of the Catholic faith and the principles of personal and social morality. All of the avenues utilized are meant to empower the young person to make a commitment to the person of Jesus Christ, the Catholic Church and a Catholic Christian way of life.

At Saint Patrick Parish our Confirmation program combines elements of the Alpha Youth, Chosen, and Decision Point Confirmation programs with reference to the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
