Sacramental Prep for Confirmation
In the Diocese of Charlotte, the Sacrament of Confirmation requires two consecutive years of formation. Typically, this occurs in the 7th and 8th grades (Edge Program). However, if the student is of high school age, participation in our high school (LifeTeen) program is required. Participation in Confirmation sessions and retreats are required as follows:
Year 1: 3 monthly Confirmation sessions – January, February, & March
Year 2: 8 monthly Confirmation sessions – September through March including the Fall and Spring Retreat.
Catholic school, Inter-Generational Faith Formation, and Catholic Home School students are exempt from the requirement to attend Edge or LifeTeen program because of the formation they receive in these schools/programs. They are still required to attend all Confirmation sessions and retreats. All other students are required to attend the Edge or LifeTeen Program on Sunday nights.
If a students needs to receive their First Eucharist, they must complete our parish’s First Communion program. Please contact the Office of Faith Formation for further details. Peggy Schumacher can be reached at 336-778-0600 at extension 214. Deacon John may be contacted at 336-778-0600 at extension 220.
If a student misses any of the Confirmation sessions, he or she must complete the Confirmation Make-up assignment found on this website. Each assignment must be completed and turned in within one week of the missed date.
