Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation  

Parent meetings for Confirmation take place during Sunday evening classes for children attending public school, as well as, those children from St. Jude Parish registered at All Saints Academy (ASA).

All eighth graders will become candidates for reception of the sacrament of Confirmation. The Confirmation ceremony is held at the Cathedral of St. Andrew each spring from the months of March-June, depending upon the dates assigned by the Bishop’s office. Candidates will begin their preparation during the summer before entering eighth grade with a summer service project. Eighth graders are expected to write a paper on a saint and to do several service projects during their eighth grade year. A Confirmation retreat is held prior to Confirmation.
