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 9th grade, or first year, students simply enroll in Life Teen and actively participate with at least 80% attendance.  When these students reach the 10th grade they begin our more formal “Confirmation Prep” program and continue Life Teen while coming to an additional session with a sponsor or parent on the 2nd Sunday of each month from 6:30-8:30pm after the 5pm Life Teen Mass.

Throughout students’ second year, 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.
