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.
