Confirmation

The Sacrament of Confirmation  

Confirmation is the second Sacrament of Initiation.  It is the outpouring of the gifts of the Holy Spirit which increases and deepens our baptismal grace. It is not the end but the beginning of our adult faith journey.  

Normally, this sacrament is received at St. John’s in the spring of 8th grade.  The requirements to receive Confirmation are: the family must be registered in our parish, attend Mass weekly and must be either in our parish school or in our Religious Education Program.  During the last 3 years, a concentrated preparation program is offered for the Confirmand/parent/sponsor.
