Confirmation Prep at All Saints begins in the 8th Grade and continues into the 9th Grade, ending in the 10th grade year. The teens will then be Confirmed in the Fall of their 10th Grade year. The Program is now integrated into the youth programs. This means that class credit will be earned by attending the youth group. Unlike popular belief, youth group is not only about bowling and eating pizza. It is Christo-centric (Christ centered) and has a heavy emphasis on interactive catechesis. EDGE Night and Life Nights combine formation and knowledge, thereby making it the best "classroom" environment for our confirmation students.
