Confirmations are celebrated annually with a Bishop. Confirmation is a two year program of preparation at St. Terrence Parish with students and the parents and normally students receiving the sacrament in 8th grade. In order to receive confirmation the family must attend Mass on all Sundays. The preparation helps Catholics understand the promises made for them at Baptism. Older students desiring to be Confirmed should contact the Faith formation Office for information on a modified Confirmation Preparation Process. All Confirmandi are interviewed to determine their willingness to live as Catholics.
