Welcome to the SJN Confirmation Program for Teens. In general, we begin preparing for Confirmation in Spring of 8th Grade for all teens who are eligible for and desiring to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. The Sacrament is then celebrated in the Fall of 9th Grade. We have already begun the preparation process for this current year. Please contact Angela Davis (email@example.com) if you have any questions.
Below is information for teens currently in the Confirmation Preparation program along with their parents and sponsors.
UPCOMING EVENTS AND INFORMATION:
Candidate Commitment Forms
Commitment Forms are due by April 22nd. Please complete one online through the following links:
The Confirmation Retreat is on May 5th from 2:30pm to 8:30pm. All candidates (teens preparing for Confirmation) are required to attend the retreat in-full. The retreat will include dinner.
Host Families Needed
We need host families to house the young adults from NET ministries while they are here for our Confirmation retreat. Host homes need to provide a sleeping location on the evenings of 5/5 and likely on 5/6 as well. You are also expected to provide them with breakfast and dinner on 5/6 and breakfast and a bagged lunch on 5/7. You will be notified in advance of any allergies that may exist. If you are interested, please complete this on-line form and someone will be in touch to let you know if anyone will be staying with you and their information.
We need help (parents and sponsors would be ideal for this) to help “behind the scenes” with the retreat. Volunteers will usher participants to where they should be, help to serve and clean-up dinner, and act as hall monitors during the event. Please sign-up for a shift to help!
