Diocese of Rochester, NY
The Confirmation process in the Diocese of Rochester is a two-year program that usually begins in eighth grade. Each year includes 17 teaching topics, one retreat, various service projects, and a final interview before Confirmation.
The most important influence on the religious and spiritual lives of your children are you, as the parents. We invite all parents and guardians to grow in their faith along with the candidates, and are welcome to attend any of the sessions or events that interest you.
Families are encouraged to attend church together each week, participate in community service or outreach, and spend time together in prayer and reflection.
Please contact the Faith Formation office at (585) 594-1441 with any questions.
