All eighth grade students are prepared for the reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation. The date for confirmation is assigned by the Archdiocese of Washington and announced to parishioners when notification is received. The archdiocese requires that a child be enrolled in religious education classes for two years prior to receiving the sacrament. Any child in a Catholic school other than St. Jane's, who will celebrate this sacrament in the current year, must register with the Faith Formation office.
