Confirmation Program (High School)

About Confirmation

Confirmation deepens our 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 in a deeper and more intensive manner with great emphasis given to the person of Jesus Christ, who asked the Father to give the Holy Spirit to the Church for building up the community in loving service.

First Day of Confirmation Class

Sunday, November 7 from 5:30-6:30pm for Confirmation students in grades 9th-12th. Second class will be during the Family Mass on Sunday, November 21 at 10:00am St. Francis Church. A schedule of Family Mass will be distributed at a later time.

Teaching Curriculum

St. John Paul the Great is vested with Pflaum Gifted with the Spirit. There are 8 lessons to 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, 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.

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 31 is the last day you can register. Registrations after this date will incur a $15.00 late fee and will be dependent 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.
