Confirmation Information for 9th Graders

(For those in 9th Grade 2020-2022)

Typically, those who are about to begin Confirmation Preparation will be in 9th grade in Fall 2020. These students will make their Confirmation during their 10th-grade year.


  1. If you are not a registered parishioner at Saint Jude, please request a letter from your Pastor that acknowledges your teen can be confirmed at Saint Jude the Apostle instead of your own parish. This letter is due to Saint Jude by September of Confirmation Year.
  2. Support your teen in attending Life Teen Nights/Events (see below)
  3.  Look for more information, along with the Confirmation Application, in the Spring of the 9th-grade year.
