- They all passed!
- 4 students earned scores of 100+ (extra credit section on the Nicene Creed allows them to score over 100 pts)
- 3 were in the 80s and 90s
- 2 were in the 70s
- 1 took the exam with the DRE on Tuesday because he could not attend Monday night…I’ll have to check on his score.
- I was pleased especially with the fact that all but one of them were able to recall the Ten Commandments from memory and write them out in full.
- A few of them were able to recall all 10 but got them in the wrong order (for which I only take a few points off)
- only one student actually left some Commandments blank
- They did well with regards to recalling the Seven Sacraments as well…most recalled all seven.
- one student left all seven sacraments blank and yet filled in some of the Sacraments in the next section, so I think there was a brain freeze taking place there.
In all, I am proud of the kids for doing so well and I will tell them that when they stand before the bishop at their Confirmation, they can say “AMEN” with great confidence when the bishop anoints them with the words, “Be sealed with the Gift of the Holy Spirit,” knowing that the Spirit has indeed sealed them!
Here’s the confirmation exam if you’re interested…it covers the basics of the Catholic faith. Confirmation Exam
