Sacramental Preparation

 

Baptism

St. John's welcomes and congratulates parents of children who are under the age of 7 years who come for Baptism. We offer a Baptismal Preparation Session the third Sunday of every month after the 11:00am Mass in Rooms 6 & 7 of the parish hall. Parents are required to attend, and godparents are encouraged to attend these sessions in order to understand the responsibility they assume when they present their children for the Sacrament. Baptisms are celebrated the first Sunday of each month after the 11:30 a.m. Mass. If your child is over the age of seven and needs to be baptized, please call the Director of Faith Formation to inquire about RCIA.
The Baptism Ministry welcomes new members to be trained for this service.
For further information or to register for the class, please call Misty Huff at St. John the Evangelist office: (321) 637- 9650.

 

 First Eucharist and First Reconciliation

First Eucharist and First Reconciliation preparation is offered for children in second grade and older. Contact the Faith Formation Office for schedule and details: (321) 637 - 9650.
 

 

Confirmation

St. John the Evangelist Confirmation preparation program begins at the start of ninth grade for high school youth and finishes when those students receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in the spring of their ninth grade year. Confirmation enhances the grace of Baptism while uniting us more firmly to Christ and increasing the gifts of the Holy Spirit in us. When we are Confirmed, we receive the full outpouring of the Holy Spirit granted to the Apostles on the day of Pentecost. It is not a graduation from church or faith formation. It is a beginning, not an end. If you have any questions about our Confirmation program, contact our Coordinator of Confirmation, Tom Buddington [email protected]  .
