Confirmation

The Sacrament of Confirmation is a celebration of the gift of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is given to us in a personal way as a Sacrament of Initiation. The Holy Spirit comes to us and empowers us to bear witness to Christ by what we say, what we do, and to help us make good choices as a disciple of Jesus.

Our hope is that the process of Confirmation preparation helps each young person prepare his mind and heart to receive the fullness of the Holy Spirit. 

 

Confirmation Preparation

Saint John’s Confirmation program for young Catholics in Grade 8 strengthens their relationships with God, their parents, and their chosen “sponsor.”  Confirmation students must be enrolled in either “A Family of Faithor Saint John School

Confirmation prep consists of:

  • Study and learning (in A Family of Faith or Saint John School) 
  • Learning to live like a disciple of Jesus Christ through
    • Prayer - Developing a steady prayer life and learning new and deeper forms of prayer
    • Service - Serving your family, community, and school
    • Discipleship - Serving Christ's Church within our parish and school family at Saint John the Evangelist of Little Canada
    • Fellowship - Living, praying, and spending time with other Catholics in an intentional way, to include parish events, retreats, and youth events.

 

The fee to cover sacramental prep expenses is $50 per student.  Full scholarships are offered to anyone who needs one.
