In an effort to determine a partial answer to the question whether or not children grow in doctrinal knowledge and understanding during the post-confirmation period, the following study was made among St. Louis children over the period of nine months after confirmation. Inasmuch, as the study confines itself to children in St. Louis, to a specific type of material, generalizations should be made cautiously. It would not necessarily be valid, for example, without careful comparison of all the variables, to conclude that children in a small rural parish in Texas would show the same rate or direction of growth that St. Louis children showed.
