- Oct 22, 2013What do parishes do to maintain attendance if they have confirmation at an earlier age?For example in this diocese we have confirmation in "10th grade" approved approximatematuration level. However, 20 mins. down the road, is a diocese where the youth celebrateConfirmation in 5th grade? Maybe if we could see a successful role model of a parish withyounger Confirmation programs we could implement some of their ideas. (sans the movingof Confirmation age.)May the Lord bless you and keep you.Dee!
