The sacrament of Confirmation completes the process of
Christian initiation begun at Baptism. It celebrates and
acknowledges the presence and action of the Holy Spirit in our lives
and the life of the Church. St. John's Youth Confirmation Program
is a two year program for high school youth. It meets for four
sessions during each year allowing the candidates time for discernment
and formation as they seek to follow Christ as one of His disciples.
There is retreat time and information meetings to guide
candidates on the journey. Facilitators, sponsors, families
and the entire church community work together to assist and empower the
candidates as they give witness to their faith in words and action by
using their gifts to live out their Christian vocation. Please
contact Margaret Manley
at the Parish Center at 201-666-2707 Ext. 213 for information about the
High School Program.
Adult Confirmation (18 years and older) follows the Rite of
Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) Process. Please contact Cathy Wollyung at
201-666-2707 Ext. 217.
