Preparation for Confirmation begins in the 8th Grade during PSR sessions held on Tuesday evenings from September to May from 7:45-9:00 pm.  Preparation continues for ninth graders with monthly meetings held on Sunday evenings at St. Bede's in the Youth Ministry Room of the Church; a retreat day is also a part of the program. Prospective candidates must be baptized and have received their First Communion.  Letters of invitation will be sent in the summer to both eighth and ninth graders.  High school students in grades10-12 are also welcome to take part in this program.  Confirmation is usually celebrated in the spring.  The aim of the Confirmation Program is to lead the young people to a deeper relationship with Christ in the Holy Spirit and a stronger experience of parish community.


The Diocese of Cleveland has recently created a plan to consolidate the number of Confirmation celebrations by scheduling parishes together in close proximity for a combined celebration of Confirmation.  St. Bede's has been paired with St. Mary of the Assumption, and Confirmation will be celebrated at St. Mary's since it is a much larger church and can accomodate both groups.


The Confirmation Team assists in the formation of our teen candidates for this sacrament. Contact Laura Ruque. 257-5544 or
