St. John’s two-year preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation is open to candidates in ninth through 12th grade. Confirmation preparation begins with the Sacrament of Baptism. It grows through the witness of the family and continues through participation in the sacraments and liturgy. Faith Formation opportunities are designed to support families in passing on the Faith to their children. At St. Johns, our tradition has been to confirm in 10th grade. Annual participation in St. John’s Faith Formation programs is expected in preparation for this sacrament.
There are a number of benefits to a two-year program: requirements are spaced over a two-year time frame, students have additional opportunities to “awaken a sense of belonging”, and Confirmation becomes part of a life-long faith journey and not a graduation.
If you are age 18 and older and have not celebrated the Sacrament of Confirmation, we welcome you to journey through preparation with the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults(RCIA) ministry. Contact the Faith Formation Office at 952-492-5827 or [email protected] for RCIA information.
