ST. JUDE PARISH
17 MOUNT OLIVE ROAD, BUDD LAKE, NEW JERSEY
Welcome to the St. Jude Confirmation Process! The Confirmation process is a journey, mapped out to strengthen and prepare our teens to receive the fullness of the Holy Spirit in the Sacrament of Confirmation. The path promises to lead our teens to spiritual growth, a deeper understanding of their Catholic faith, and an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. As they embark, teens are called to reflect upon our Baptismal call and answer that call with their lives.
The Confirmation process at St. Jude Parish involves a two-year commitment to sacramental preparation, designed to ready our teens for lives of discipleship. Generally, registration occurs in the Spring of 8th grade after continuous faith formation, with the program beginning in the Fall of 9th grade and the sacrament celebrated in the Spring of 10th grade. Preparation is multi-faceted, offering many opportunities for growth and development through Word/Catechesis, Worship, Service, Retreats, and Parish Life. Following the RCIA model, teens are challenged to mature through periods of Invitation, Formation, Reflection, and Mission. We invite our teens and their families to set out on this journey with hearts that are willing and minds that are open to the movement of the Holy Spirit.
