There is a change that will take place in our religious education program this year. This change will affect the present level 6 PREP students in the short term and all students in subsequent years.
The Archdiocese of Philadelphia is moving towards a later age for the reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation. At St. Basil’s we are currently transitioning from sixth to seventh grade. Confirmation will next be celebrated in our parish by the bishop in the spring of 2015. This aligns with the other parishes in our pastoral planning area (APPA 210.)
The 2014-15 PREP session will consist of Confirmation preparation for this year's level 6 PREP students; most likely a 6-10 week program. SBG School students will be prepared for Confirmation in 7th grade 2014-2015.
