At Holy Ghost, Confirmation for youth is ordinarily celebrated during the Fall of a student's junior year of high school. Preparation for this sacrament begins in ninth grade and includes instruction, spiritual formation (retreats and days of recollection), and development of a sense of sharing in community life (service hours in Church, school, and community).
Confirmation requires two years of preparation. This preparation is separate from catechesis obtained from attending Catholic high schools or parochial schools of religion as stated in the Diocese of Baton Rouge Pagella (page 75).
While there are specific meeting times for Confirmation preparation, all youth are strongly encouraged to join and be a part of Youth Ministry which encompasses all facets of living out our Catholic faith through spirituality, fellowship, fun activities, and charity.
