The Confirmation program is a two-year formation and preparation program, traditionally beginning in seventh grade, with the Sacrament of Confirmation conferred during the spring semester of eighth grade. The Confirmation program engages the candidates in a variety of ways to help them grow in faith and better prepare to witness Jesus to the world.
Confirmation preparation is required in order to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.

At Prince of Peace we will offer two different ways to fulfill your Confirmation preparation:
- Ember. Ember is a middle school youth ministry. We start the night with a game, have an engaging message, meet with small groups, and end with prayer. Ember meets on Wednesday nights from 6:30PM-8:00PM in the youth room. This ministry is open to all 7th and 8th graders to participate in, including School of Religion students, Prince of Peace School students and those students from within our boundaries. We are doing everything in our power to keep students safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of this, our in-person nights meet every other week to minimize the amount of people gathering at once. Interaction during these nights is limited to a small group and all groups are spread out as much as possible. On the "off weeks" we will provide videos and short reflections to be completed by students of our priests going through the "50 Truths Every Catholic Teen Should Know" that Archbishop Naumann created to still allow them to engage their faith and preparation every single week. We are still offering a Homestudy option for preparation this year. Please email Megan for more information before registering for this option.
- Enrollment at Prince of Peace Catholic School. Enrollment at Prince of Peace Catholic School and participation in the school's Religion class fulfills Confirmation preparation for those students’ 7th and 8th grade year.
We take the Confirmation process seriously because it's about becoming adults in the Church. We expect parents and students to take it seriously too and failure to do so by not meeting requirements or deadlines may result in their Confirmation being pushed back a year if we don't believe a student is properly prepared to take this big step in their faith journey.
