Manchester Diocese Third Graders Will Receive Confirmation and First Communion in 2018

While the age of a Confirmandi ranges diocese to diocese, the Diocese of Manchester, for many years has bestowed the sacrament to 10th graders, who after they receive it are no longer expected to attend religious education classes.

After June 2018, however, Confirmation and First Holy Communion will be given to 3rd graders.
