Young Catholics in the Archdiocese of Atlanta receive the sacrament of confirmation in the tenth grade after two years of formation.
Sacrament of Confirmation
In the Archdiocese of Atlanta, Confirmation preparation is at least a two year process that ends with students receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation in the 10th grade.
At St. Pius X, our 8th grade students simply enroll in Edge and actively participate with at least 80% attendance. The same is repeated in 9th grade with some additional prep opportunities specific to the Sacrament of Confirmation. When these students reach the 10th grade they begin our more formal “Confirmation Prep” program and may continue Life Teen while attending our Confirmation Prep sessions as scheduled.
Throughout students’ preparation process, they participate in service projects both in the parish and in the community on a journey to live as fully initiated members of the parish.
For more information, please contact our Faith Formation department.
