Confirmation - Grades 9 and 10
The Blessed Sacrament Parish Confirmation program follows the guidelines of the Diocese of Norwich. The program consists of 2 years of studying our Faith, Catholic Social Teaching, the Workings of the Holy Spirit in our lives, and Community Service. We will delve into a deeper prayer life through learning and participating in different devotions of the Catholic Faith, attending Mass together, and through Adoration. Our vision for our students is that they will grow in wisdom, knowledge, and love, having the confidence to go out into the world to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ and live a faith-filled life, steeped in the Catholic Tradition.
The program for Confirmation Prep years 1 & 2 (Grades 9 & 10) is
