SANTA CLARA CATHOLIC CHURCH Confirmation Survey (Youth program)
Currently at Catholic parishes within the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, the Youth Sacrament of Confirmation classes begin at age 14-15 (9th-10th grade). Most of the youth come after having received First Communion at age 9. There is a big gap of 5-6 years from First Communion to Confirmation. The purpose of this survey is for you to help us see if we can do a better job in the faith education of our children.
Note: This survey is directed to parents or adults.
