Congratulations to our 2019 Confirmandi!


In the Archdiocese of Washington, sacramental preparation for Confirmation takes place over two years. Those interested in preparing for Confirmation in their 9th grade year should be enrolled in Catholic faith formation during their 8th grade year.

All students entering 9th grade whose families are registered at JGS receive an invitation to enter the Confirmation program. Sessions are held on Sunday evenings throughout the year.

The 2019-2020 Confirmation Preparation Program began on Sunday, September 15th. Please find this year’s information in the important resources below:
