Confirmation

The Diocese of Lansing requires that students receive at least two years of preparation before receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation. In order to meet this requirement, at Holy Family, students need to attend religious education classes at least during both seventh and eighth grades to be eligible for Confirmation. The actual preparation for the reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation takes place in eighth grade. Parents must attend a mandatory meeting. It is expected that students attend every class. Should attendance become an issue, the Director of Religious Education will set-up a meeting with the parents and the student. This could result in the delayed reception of the sacrament. Upon successful completion of the requirements for the reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation, students will be confirmed in the fall of 9th grade.

First Reconciliation and First Communion

The Diocese of Lansing requires that students receive at least two years of preparation before receiving the Sacraments of Penance and Holy Communion. In order to meet this requirement, children normally make their first confession and receive their First Communion in second grade.

Should attendance become an issue, the Director of Religious Education will set-up a meeting with parents and student. Parents must attend a mandatory meeting for each sacrament and a mandatory retreat for each sacrament.
