8th Grade PREP

8th Grade students, rather than attending Summer Prep or weekly Monday night classes, participate in a series of meetings and workshops starting in September/October of 2022 until they receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in the Spring of 2023.   The program includes: 

  • Confirmation Enrollment Mass in October;
  • Parent Meeting;
  • 4 or 5 evening workshops for Confirmation Candidates where they will learn more about the Sacrament of Confirmation and our faith.
  • A Confirmation retreat;
  • Attend (6) parish family events through their 8th grade year;
  • Confirmation practice and Confirmation Mass in the Spring.

Should you have any questions or need additional information, please feel free to email Karen Pells at or call (609) 927-3568, ext. 24.
