Welcome to the SJN Confirmation Program for Teens. In general, we begin preparing for Confirmation in the spring of 8th grade for all teens who are eligible for and desire to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. The Sacrament is then celebrated in the fall of 9th grade.

Information for the upcoming Confirmation Preparation Program was sent by mail in late March 2020 for all eligible teens. Please contact Angela Davis (adavis@saintjn.org) if you have any questions.

Below is information for those who are registered in the Confirmation prep program this year and are planning to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in the fall of 2020!

Many of the dates listed in the original “Save the Date” have been updated due to current public health concerns, please check for updates regularly. Should events or meetings need to be rescheduled, that information will be sent out by email and updated here.


Important Information and Updates


Retreat Update and Signup – All candidates MUST attend a retreat in full to be eligible for the Sacrament of Confirmation. We have rescheduled our retreat and combined it with the “Gathered Prep Session” and the “Interviews” from the original save-the-date. Please sign up for ONE of the retreat nights by August 21!
Retreat nights will be held in-person with social distancing and masks. Participants are encouraged to bring a device (smartphone, tablet, etc.) for a review game using the questions from the Bishop.
Retreat nights will be 6pm-8:30pm and will include a Reconciliation Service and will NOT include dinner (so please eat before coming). Here are the dates which you can choose from on the signup:
  • September 30
  • October 1
  • October 6
  • October 7

Modules 6-10 are Due Soon – Teens should be working on the modules and have them fully completed by August 15. If, for some reason, you have not already created a login, create one now.
