FAQ: Do Catholic High School students need to attend Confirmation classes? Yes. The Archdiocese of Atlanta gives responsibility for sacramental preparation to the parish, so Catholic schools do not specifically prepare their students for Confirmation. The program offered at Saint Brigid is designed for all students. Confirmation classes and events are required for all students, regardless of the public or private high school they currently attend.
FAQ: What about Lifeteen? The Life Teen program is not a required part of the Confirmation program, but we strongly encourage all students to participate in Life Teen. See the Youth Ministry webpage for more information!
Older Students: Confirmation is typically received in 10th grade, but any teen up to the age of 17 can participate in this program and receive Confirmation. Current 10th and 11th-grade students are welcome to register!
We look forward to working with you as together we prepare your teen for Confirmation!
