St. Joseph Tips

Although the Rite of Confirmation occurs in the Grade 7, families can support their child(ren) in their faith journey from a young age. First of all, understand that you are the most important role model in your child’s life. The best way to encourage your child(ren) to deepen their faith is to deepen your own faith first.  Even if it doesn’t seem like they’re paying much attention, know that they are taking their cues from you.  The life of the Spirit that radiates from you will (with prayer) rub off on your kids eventually, and maybe in ways you least expect.  For more tips visit https://catholicmom.com/2012/03/25/how-to-spiritually-prepare-your-teen-for-confirmation/
