Confirmation strengthens us to defend the faith and to spread the Gospel courageously. – Pope Francis

Confirmation preparation is a period of formation that includes two years of dedicated faith formation in the pastorate High School Youth Ministry with immediate preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation during the second year.  Candidates may begin their Confirmation journey as they begin 9th grade to receive the sacrament at the end of their 10th grade year.

In order to register for Confirmation prep, the candidate must be registered at St. Joseph or St. John and have received the Sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, and First Communion. (A copy of the Candidate’s Baptismal record must be provided.)

The Candidate must have attended at least one year of a Faith Formation program or attended an accredited Catholic school prior to preparation.

Each person’s story and journey are different. If you were not Confirmed as a teen and would like to be Confirmed as an adult, we offer adult Confirmation. Please contact Amy Spessard  to learn more about being Confirmed as an adult.
