      What 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 approximate
      maturation level. However, 20 mins. down the road, is a diocese where the youth celebrate
      Confirmation in 5th grade? Maybe if we could see a successful role model of a parish with
      younger Confirmation programs we could implement some of their ideas. (sans the moving
      of Confirmation age.)
      May the Lord bless you and keep you.

      I was meeting with a group of DRe/CREs in St. Louis lst weekend and we were discussing how the percentages of children who leave after First Communion and then showup right before Confirmation is increasing.  What is your experience? How do you deal with it?
      Tks for your input.
