Confirmation completes and confirms baptismal grace in the believer, and thus all ought to receive it. The Sacrament of Confirmation gives the gift of the Holy Spirit, rooting us more firmly in our divine sonship. It fortifies our bond with the Church, strengthens us, and gives us courage to bear witness to Jesus and the gospel in word and deed. (Catechesis: 1285, 1303, 1306]
At JGS, Confirmation is for high school students, grade 10 through 12. During the spring each year, those students who have completed the Confirmation Preparation class will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. Non- Catholic school students will be required to attend the tenth grade Parish School of Religion classes in order to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. Parish students enrolled at St. Frederick will join the Confirmation Prep course only.
