Change in the grade for the reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation:
St. Cyril of Jerusalem Parish will be celebrating the Sacrament of Confirmation in Level 7 in accordance with a directive issued by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia in February, 2018. The transition to Level 7 will begin in the 2018-2019 PREP year with level 6 becoming the first year in a two-year Confirmation Preparation Program. The criteria for the two-year program will follow the doctrinal framework for the sacrament preparation developed by the Archdiocesian Office of Divine Worship and the Office of Catechetical Formation. The framework specifically outlines the doctrinal elements to be included in the sacramental preparation of those who will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. The Sacrament of Confirmation will not be received in the 2018-2019 PREP Year.
