St. John’s offers a two-year preparation for confirmation beginning in 9th grade and is open to all high school students. Year 1 and 2 students attend classes every Wednesday evening 7pm-8:30pm October through May. All sacramental preparation is focused on enabling teens and their families to participate more fully in the sacramental life of the church and to grow as disciples of Jesus Christ.
“Now when the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God, they sent them Peter and John, who went down and prayer for them, that they might receive the Holy Spirit, for it had not yet fallen upon any of them; they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. They laid hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit” Acts 8:14-17
