Confirmation Preparation

Confirmation Preparation is a 2+ year program here at St. John Vianney.  The program starts with two full years of classes.  Then in the fall of the third year, candidates participate in a Retreat, Penance Service, Rehearsal and a Final Interview.  The Sacrament will take place in the fall of the third year.  Candidates may start Confirmation Preparation no earlier than 8th grade.  All candidates must complete both years of preparation before receiving the Sacrament.  Students that attend school at SJV for 8th grade will receive Confirmation Preparation 1 in their religion class in school.  More information on our Confirmation Program can be found in our Family Faith Formation brochure:  Faith Formation Brochure 2018-19
