Confirmation

Confirmation Preparation Program 2019-2020 

The Confirmation Prep program at SJB is designed to help candidates understand the meaning of the Sacrament of Confirmation, renew their understanding of Baptism, reflect on essential elements of the Catholic faith, and examine the importance of being an active and practicing Catholic.

Registration for the 2019-2020 program is now open and WILL CLOSE on September 1st. 

As part of the registration process, every candidate and his/her parents must attend an entrance interview. This interview has two purposes: 1) to help us better understand students' needs going into Confirmation Prep, and 2) to ensure that candidates and their parents get their questions answered and receive all the important information they need.

Any student in high school is welcome to participate in the program, but candidates to receive the sacrament of Confirmation must be baptized and practicing Catholics. Candidates will be expected to attend Mass every weekend and on Holy Days of Obligation and go to Confession at least once a year. More information about the program policies and expectations will be given to you at your interview.

To register for Confirmation Prep:

1. Call or email Tim to schedule your interview.
2. Find or request a copy of your Baptism Certificate.
3. Print and fill out both sides of the Registration Form (click to download).
4. Bring the Baptism Certificate and Registration Form to your interview.
5. Pay the registration fees by October 1, 2019.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I look forward to meeting with you soon!
