Important Confirmation Information
8th grade is a pivotal year as students ready themselves for Confirmation and prepare for high school. This is why 8th grade students are asked to meet certain requirements before they can be confirmed. These requirements are intended to help students deepen their faith and grow in their relationship with Christ. Each 8th grade student in Faith Formation Classes, Home Faith, and the School commits to the following:
- September 28-30, 2018 at Damascus Catholic Mission Campus.
- Check out more information about Damascus here.

Each student must complete 13 service hours. Any hours that were done after the completion of their 7th grade year through April 1 of their 8th grade year can be counted. Click the button at the top of this page to submit your service hours.
