Confirmation is not graduation, rather it is a beginning for an active life in the church. So, we strongly encourage that you continue to have them going to mass on Sundays. Also, please enroll them in a parish youth group. This would be a great place for them to continue their faith formation while they have some fun making new friends. At Loretto, we have Idente Youth group for teens in grades 6 to 12.

Additionally, your child could could enroll to serve as an altar server or a member of the youth choir.
