We are respectfully requesting that our children receive the Sacrament of Confirmation prior to graduating from St Paul's Beach, starting with the current 7th grade(Class of 2024).

We are asking you to join us by signing this petition to have our children receive the Sacrament of Confirmation prior to graduating from St Paul's Beach. 

St Paul's Beach is the ONLY school in our diocese that does not confirm prior to 8th grade graduation. Confirmation is the last sacrament of Catholic initiation, and one that students throughout the diocese immerse themselves in during preparation for it as part of their 8th grade religion cirriculum. 

We all agree that keeping our children engaged in and committed to the Catholic Faith is the ultimate goal. By requiring that our children come back on weekends (during their 9th grade school year) is working in opposition of this goal, placing unnecessary and underserving stress on our children and pushing them away from their faith during a time they should be leaning into it. Sending the into high school fully armed and prepared with the gifts of the Holy Spirit is of utmost importance to our children and us.

 

Please join us in signing this petition.
