What do you do with 200+ Confirmation candidates?

Our program provides weekly meetings of small faith communities that gather here at St. John's to keep parish life in mind. We gather in large group for a half hour and then divide into small groups for the last hour. Each group consists of 2 adult facilitators and 1 Confirmed teen facilitator and approximately 12 candidates. Students begin their Confirmation journey their freshman year and complete the Sacrament of Confirmation in the spring of their sophomore year. Two dynamic retreats with nationally known Catholic presenters are held in the spring of each year!  We also offer a variety of high school activities, conferences, and mission trips in which all students are encouraged to participate.

We are:

  • Grounded in contemporary initiation theology
  • Rooted in the life of an evangelizing and catechizing community of believers
  • Focused on initiating young people into on-going faith development with the Church
