OLGC celebrates Holy Confirmation in the 6th grade. Candidates are formed in one of two ways: at OLGC Parish School or within the context of our EDGE middle school youth program. EDGE is a relational ministry that is formative, impactful, and relevant for middle schoolers. There will be lessons specific to Confirmation, as well as faith topics that will support middle schoolers in living the life God intends them to live, while also encouraging them to go on mission to serve others in the community.

Retreats are also an important part of our formation process. Parents and sponsors will each attend an interactive retreat with their candidate. These offerings are geared toward bringing a deeper understanding of Confirmation as well as continuing the conversation and faith-building at home. We explore why Confirmation is important, relevant, and how it seals one’s soul for serving Christ as His disciple.

There is much more to the formation journey here at OLGC. We begin this process in 5th grade through the collaboration of families and the Religious Formation Team. Families of 5th graders should look for a letter mailed in the fall to give more guidance on what is to come!

Have a student in 7th & 8th gr. needing to be Confirmed? We have a way to catch them up and put them on the path toward Confirmation.
