The St. John Fisher Confirmation Program begins in 9th grade with a year of preparation before students receive the Sacrament at the beginning of their 10th grade year.  The program consists of a series of sessions that draw young people into a deeper faith as they enter into full membership in the Catholic Church.

Elements of the program:

•    Choosing a Sponsor to provide spiritual guidance throughout the sacramental journey
•    Choosing a Saint Name that represents something meaningful to the candidate
•    Completed Christian Service Projects totaling 14 hours

operation christmas childWe know it’s early to start thinking about the Christmas season but, believe it or not, it’s just around the corner. We need you to bring in toys and goodies for children in third world countries who don’t really get to celebrate Christmas. With your help we can change the lives of hundreds of children. Operation Christmas Child is a great activity to do with your family to get ready for Christmas. If you’re interested, please pick up an Operation Christmas Child brochure in the front of the church. Boxes are due not later than Sunday, November 19th, after the 10:30 Mass.

The Confirmation class is once again making Christmas bags for the men at Immacare Shelter and is in need of decks of playing cards. Anyone interested in donating playing cards may leave them in the baskets at the church entrances. We are also continuing to collect gently used beanie babies, small stuffed animals and fiction books (children & adult) for various Confirmation service projects.
