Confirmation Preparation at Queens
Confirmation preparation for parish youth begins in 8th grade and involves a variety of experiences, including theological instruction either at Lumen Christi or the parish 8th grade Faith Formation class on Sunday mornings, service requirements, participation in 3 Saturday retreats during the course of the school year, a retreat and rehearsal in the fall of their Confirmation year, and several other smaller activities. Specifics of all of the requirements are detailed in our Confirmation Handbook 2021-2022. Students are usually confirmed in the fall of their 9th-grade year.
Confirmation preparation for Catholic adults who missed the sacrament as young people can be accomplished either by attending special Adult Confirmation classes, which are scheduled as the need arises, or by attending RCIA classes on Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm.
Please feel free to contact Betsy Koval, Director of Faith Formation , for more information about these programs.
