As a preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation, our 9th graders spend the year taking an overall view of the basic truths of our Catholic faith. We consider Tradition, passed down from parent to child, Divine Revelation and Sacred Tradition.
We reflect on the Creeds, the seven Sacraments and why Jesus instituted them, the Commandments, types of sin, the importance of Christian prayer, morality, and our conscience.
The children get involved in service activities to use their gifts and talents in helping others in need. We visit with residents in local nursing homes and some candidates participate in the 'Living Stations" presentation on Good Friday in church.
