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 desiring 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 for all eligible teens. Please contact Angela Davis (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions or did not get the Save the Date and Welcome Letter by mail.
Below is information for those who are or will be registered in the Confirmation prep program this year and are planning to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in the Fall of 2020!
The dates listed below and in the Save the Date are our current plan. However, 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:
Candidate Commitment Form – Commitment forms were due by April 24th. If you have not already done so, pease complete this online. There is a $20 fee associated with the registration, this fee will cover the cost of a robe which will be worn by all teens during their Confirmation. We have a new database (Realm) this year so parents will need to create a new password in order to complete the registration. Use the link below for instructions on how to do that. Once you are signed into Realm, click on “events” on the left of your screen.
Rite of Enrollment – Due to the current pandemic, we will not be asking everyone to signup for and participate in a Rite of Enrollment during Masses with the community. Instead, we ask that you take some time while completing the commitment form to consider the significance of your commitment.
Complete Modules 1-5 – Please make sure to be working on the modules and to complete the first five by July 1st. If you have not already created a login, please see the link below.
The deadline for handing in Sponsor Certificates has been extended to August 1st. Please begin this process as soon as possible as it can take time to obtain. If your sponsor is a member of St. John Neumann, we do NOT need a certificate.
Retreat – The retreat, which was scheduled for May 1st, will need to be rescheduled. We will let you know as more details are determined; it is too soon to know what the best alternative will be.
