7th & 8th Grade Program Options
Confirmation preparation takes place during 7th and 8th Grade. Candidates who missed previous sacraments may need additional prepration. Visit the Confirmation page for more information. There are two program options for 7th and 8th Grade youth: Middle School EDGE offers a youth ministry format geared to the younger adolescent, utilizing materials by Lifeteen's EDGE program; Growing in Faith Together (GIFT) is a family-based catechesis for children ages Kindergarten through 8th Grade. Both programs seek to nourish the spiritual development of youth through faith learning and liturgical experiences, to foster a commitment to others through service opportunities, and to develop a sense of parish community by providing optional social events for our middle school youth.
- Please register for the program and session time that your child can attend regularly and does not conflict with their extracurricular activities.
- All 7th & 8th graders must attend either EDGE, GIFT, or an approved Archdiocesan Catholic school to be on track to celebrate the sacrament of Confirmation in the 10th grade. Attendance of at least 80% of their sessions is needed to meet the Confirmation preparation requirement for 7th and 8th Grade.
