BDMS Confirmation 2017

 

The 6th, 7th, and 8th grade religion program follows the guidelines set by the Archdiocese of New York which include: the revelation of God in the Old Testament and the New Testament, Jesus and the Gospel message, sacraments, human sexuality, church history, morality, prayer, and personal growth (human person and the human community).

The students also review Catholic prayers and traditions throughout the Church seasons and work on developing an appreciation for liturgy and the Eucharist through various activities, such as planning liturgies and participating in Mass and Benediction. The sacrament of Reconciliation is also offered at various times throughout the school year. 

 The 7th grade presents the Living Stations of the Cross on April 1st at 1:00P.M.  

All 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade students will be given the Archdiocesan religion exam in each grade in June. This will count as their final exam.

Confirmation for the eighth grade will be on March 18, 2020 at 6:00PM at the Dominican Center Chapel. A letter will be coming home in October regarding other requirements for Confirmation.
