Preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation is a one year process that usually takes place in the 9th grade. Classes meet twice per month typically on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month from 6:00-7:30 pm at St. John XXIII. Students have Enrichment and Service requirements and there is also a required retreat. Contact the parish office for more information.

Xavier families are asked to register their children for sacramental preparation at St. John XXIII. The question is often asked if children who attend Catholic schools still need to do sacrament preparation. The answer is “yes.” Sacramental preparation occurs within the parish community where the sacraments are celebrated.
