Students from the parishes of Saint Clement and Saint James prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation together.

Confirmation preparation for students in 8th grade through 11th grade begins on Sunday, September 18, with a meeting for parents and candidates at Saint Clement Parish Hall at 7:00pm.

Candidates meet regularly for instruction. Study includes an in depth look at Baptism, the Gifts of the Spirit, choosing a sponsor, being witnesses to the Gospel and exploring holy people as role models.

A retreat day, a service component and participation at student Masses are also part of Confirmation preparation. The Sacrament of Confirmation will be celebrated early 2017.
