St. John Fisher Roman Catholic Church

30 Jones Hollow Road, Marlborough, CT 06447

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

The holiday season was a busy one for the Confirmation Community, actively living out their call to discipleship.

A few ways we did this include:

  • Making sandwiches for the clients at House of Bread
  • Baking and decorating cookies with the children at the Hartford Catholic Worker House
  • Making Christmas decorations for Adelbrook
  • Decorating gingerbread houses for the Marlborough Health Care Center
  • Helping at the family party at the MHCC
  • Making no-sew blankets for children in shelters
  • Wrapping Christmas gifts for the clients at MHCC
  • Making candy bags for Immacare and House of Bread
  • Worked with other parishes to make Christmas bags for the clients at Immacare.

Please continue to pray for these amazing young people as they fully embrace their faith by letting God’s light shine through them as they build community and relationships with others.

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.
