Confirmation in the St. Cloud diocese is typically celebrated in 11th grade (or older). Students attend weekly formation classes to prepare for this important Sacrament, which is a sealing of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit given at Baptism, and which strengthens each person to better live out their Christian faith.
Preparation at St. Mary of Mt. Carmel includes these weekly classes (Wednesdays, 7-8:30 p.m., September-spring), participation in a Confirmation retreat, a meeting with Father, meetings with their sponsor, and the liturgies that are part of Confirmation prep (Rite of Calling in the fall and the Sacrament of Confirmation in the spring).
Adults who would like to prepare for Confirmation also meet regularly in a weekly adult sacramental preparation class.
