Confirmation Program (High School)

About Confirmation

Confirmation deepens the baptismal life that calls us to be missionary witnesses of Jesus Christ in our families, neighborhoods, society, and the world. We receive the message of faith more deeply and intensively, with great emphasis given to the person of Jesus Christ, who asked the Father to give the Holy Spirit to the Church to build up the community in loving service.

First Day of Confirmation Class

Sunday, October 16 from 5:00-6:30pm for Confirmation students in grades 9th-12th.

Teaching Curriculum

St. John Paul the Great is vested with Pflaum Gifted with the Spirit. There are eight lessons in the program, and every lesson begins and ends with prayer. Each lesson includes hands-on Bible activities to help the young people develop greater familiarity and comfort with Scripture. Lessons also include a Catholic Literacy feature, the definition of faith words, journaling opportunities, individual and group activities that invite the young people to consider ways to put their faith into action, and suggestions for service.  Lessons cover Catholic tradition clearly and in depth, include a Scripture search to strengthen biblical connections, and offer lively activities to keep young minds engaged. A Called to Serve feature suggests works of mercy or justice the young people can perform to serve others outside of their class sessions.

Registration for 2022-2023 is due by Sunday, September 25. Registrations after this date will incur a $15.00 late fee and depend on availability in our classrooms. Our goal is to never leave a child out of the programs; however, due to limited space and teachers, we have limitations with enrollment. 

We welcome and are delighted to accept all students; however, no walk-ins will be accepted on the first day of class. Students need to have been pre-registered and assigned to a class list to attend the first day of class—no exceptions to this rule.
