8th Grade PREP

8th Grade students, rather than attending Summer Prep or weekly Monday night classes, participate in a series of meetings and workshops starting in September/October of 2022 until they receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in the Spring of 2023.   The program includes: 

  • Confirmation Enrollment Mass in October;
  • Parent Meeting;
  • 4 or 5 evening workshops for Confirmation Candidates where they will learn more about the Sacrament of Confirmation and our faith.
  • A Confirmation retreat;
  • Attend (6) parish family events through their 8th grade year;
  • Confirmation practice and Confirmation Mass in the Spring.

You can register your 8th Grader using the Weekly Fall Registration Form OR  the Summer Registration Form if your family attends Summer PREP – whichever is easier. 

Should you have any questions or need additional information, please feel free to email Karen Pells at reled@stjosephsomerspoint.org or call (609) 927-3568, ext. 24.
